The dangers of drinking water

December 14, 2011 § 1 Comment

My Mum just sent me this in an email.

How cool is my Mum? 🙂


To my friends who enjoy  a glass of wine..and those who don’t and are always seen with  a bottle of water in their hand.


As Ben Franklin  said:


In wine there is wisdom,

In beer there is  freedom,

In water there is bacteria.


In a number of  carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated

that  if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year  we would

have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli,  (E. Coli) – bacteria

found in faeces.


In other words, we are  consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that  risk when drinking wine & beer

(or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through

a  purification process of boiling, filtering and/or  fermenting.



Water = Poop,

Wine =  Health

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk crap, than to drink water

and be full of  crap..


There is no need to thank me for this  valuable information:

I’m doing it as a public  service
