H20 is Bad for Health

I received this email about the virtues of drinking – and I don’t mean H20.

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

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 equals Poop,
Wine equals Health .
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid,
Than to drink water and be full of shit .

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information – I'm doing it as a public service!
And I am not doubting for one sec this piece of advice; it is really, really true and you'd better believe it! See you for "Happy Hours" later, okay?

That is so stupid! If you actually read the email clearly it basically says that 1 liter of water = 1 kilo of E. Coli. How can that be possible as 1 liter of water is equal in weight to 1 kilogram!! Come on! Read emails before you post them everywhere and pass them on! How can water (H2O) be bad for your health!

Craig, thanks for your feedback. I believe this posting should be read toungue-in-cheek - it's not meant to be taken seriously! I am making the posit that beer is so much better than just drinking water - whether E.Coli is present in water or not!
