Most creatures along with humans are made of 70% water, so drinking water is natural.
The European union has new regulations regarding water and the drinking of it. Drinking water shouldn’t be such a troubling thing so as to have a governmental agency to become over involved in the regulation of it’s uses, saying: ” There is no proof ( Scientific or other wise ) that the drinking of water from bottles helps to re-hydrate in cases of dehydration.”
Why is this governmental agency getting overly involved in the acts of drinking water in the first place? Why should they have to set the amount of daily water consumption a person should have in order to pursue good working bodily functions and good health?
You know just when your body needs water, being thirsty is the body’s way of telling your mind ” Get some water man! It’s been too long of time sence my last drink! ” I don’t think people who are thirsty need someone to tell them to drink water. If your stuck in the desert and come upon some water, you would brush aside the scum on the top and drink it down. The human body can survive days without food but only a day or two without water before problems set in. Low water in the body’s system is dehydration. Symptoms of dehydration are, headache, low blood pressure, light handedness, difficulty of urination, or discoloured dark urine. Just to name a few of the biggies.
If you’re heading towards becoming dehydrated your body will be telling you just what to do. All though some illnesses can cause you in becoming thirsty like( diabetes ) for one, over active people in warm weather can also become more in need of water thus more thirsty, over normal conditions. That’s the point of our body’s telling us just what it needs and when it is needed.
Yet in the European union, water has become a major issue of late. The need of regulation of their bottle water company’s, and their advertisements of the product they sell, seem to be the problem. Companies that claim ” Drinking water will aid in, or even cure dehydration, or aid in the rehydration in cases of dehydration”. Can not be permitted. This can result in a two-year prison sentence now with the new regulations, and laws! Just crazy when you think about it. But having to contemplate just such madness, is a sure cause of your next headache!
I have heard of, and witnessed government’s micro management of every kind of things before. But personal water consumption? Considering that we all are made of 70% water, as far as living things go at least. Most modern people just drink too much diuretics! I can see that most people can have some sort of dehydration going at any time. Drinking too much diuretics like soda, beer, alcohol, coffee, and tea just to name a few of the majors. Most people are leaving out the drinking of water because it tastes like …. nothing! This can lead someone down the road to mild dehydration!
Why can’t water bottlers say that ” Drinking water can help with or even cure mild dehydration “? It’s water! Having to get an approval, or a government involved as if it is a drug, is just ….? Should governments get involved with this in the first place? Just what is the harm in these claims by water company’s? It’s not making false statements. Maybe incomplete statements? Only because dehydration can have many causes, like being caused by illnesses. But when you go to the hospital being dehydrated, an Iv solution hook up, is the call by most doctors. The solution is mostly water!
When you consider that EFSA ( The European food safety agency ) wasted 3 years of time to draw their conclusions as well as this ridiculous regulations of bottled water. We who choose to live in the reality of life, should come to question their sanity. As well as the need for them to have totally waste the tax payers money.
The EFSA defends their ruling by saying ” Water doesn’t reduce the risk of dehydration. But to alow clams, and or advertisements by the water company’s who bottle water, is only trying to imply that there is something special about bottled water. this kind of mind-set is not a responsable claim to making. “Yet this same agency along with the UK’s Nutritional Society, who also agrees with the study findings of the EFSA.
These agencies also say ” That in order to have a balanced diet and promote good body functions and all a round good health. It is necessary to drink 2 leaders of water daily.”
Funny! How it is important to set standard dosages of the amount of water one should drink. without taking in consideration of the age of a person or their size, sex, or the activity’s of these individuals. Without also excepting the clams that water is a requirement for all living things in avoiding dehydration, or that the drinking of water for the purpose of re-hydration of ones self is a good thing.
What should the governments point be, by having great details about the use of water, and its proper dosages for people through immense broad generalizations, as being the standers of the day? Yet overlooking the facts of its necessity in order to avoid dehydration, as well as allowing the bottle water company’s in making this claim?
If we as people of a modern society allow our governments to take over every aspect of life, through a socialization type of government taking over totally. We will be greatly disappointed with an over reaching power grabbing attitude. We could then easily get to a point of outlawing common sense! Is this the new normal?
Don’t be fooled by a government who’s only excuse is to try to explain the easily explainable, in an overly difficult and overly complicated way! Someone tried to defend governments way of complicating everything or so it seems by saying to me : ” Government and the job of governing people is like making sausages. Everyone likes to eat them but doesn’t like to see what goes in them!”
I say ; ” Governments attitudes, like making the posses of governing with legendary insane micro management of every aspect of our lives. By the over use of overly complex posses, designed only to confuse the people they govern. Through the unrealistic regulations, as well as new laws, only leads people in having less freedoms! To freely exchange the responsibility’s that are ours in the first place. In except a life of ease, presented by a government-run by totally intoxicated politicians, with the ultimate drug of total power over you. Is the total avocation of ones own freedoms! Leaving you no other choices other than excepting their views, as well as their choices made for you in everything. This amounts to the same amount of freedoms as the government feeding you a excrement sandwich, with the only real concern of making you ask if it is okay to wash the bad taste out of your mouth with a little water!
Did I hear you say please?
