    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

It’s a fairly known fact that the adult human body is typically 60% made out of water.

Hence comes the common sense that if you happen to become dehydrated, you have to drink water to get well. It’s an instinctual event, this is why our body developed the essential mechanism of thirst.

NHS health guidelines state clearly that drinking water helps avoid dehydration, and that people should drink at least 2.2 litres per day (half a gallon). The European Food Standards Authority* EFSA acknowledges that “water contributes to the maintenance of normal physical and cognitive functions” and “water contributes to the maintenance of normal thermoregulation (body temperature)”

All fair, well and logical so far eh? No need to dwell on this at all really. Water is essential for our well being and prevents us becoming dehydrated.

Simple.

Logical.

Nothing to see here – move along……..

But wait, here is the European Food Standards Authority* and they’re taking another look.

They’ve just completed a three year study and found that water does not prevent dehydration, and as such bottled water manufactures should not advertise any statements on labels or during campaigns that claims it does.

So just to recap, the European Food Standards Authority has spent three years deliberating on whether water prevents dehydration.

They’ve found that it doesn’t.

And if you say it does you risk two years in prison.

Good that the normal work of the EU, wasting thousands of euros on completely useless nonsense safeguarding the public, can continue while the continent’s economy collapses.
