In stunning show of bureaucratic idiocy, EU directive bans health claim that water prevents dehydration

The collection of medically-indoctrinated idiots known as the European Food Standards Authority has officially disallowed a product health claim that says water prevents dehydration.
This means the EU does not even recognize the therapeutic ability of water to reverse chronic dehydration. It makes you wonder: If water cannot treat dehydration, then what would they use instead? Vaccines?
The claim that was denied by the EFSA stated that “regular consumption of significant amounts of water can reduce the risk of development of dehydration.” This claim was submitted to the EFSA by consultants who advise food and beverage companies (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor…). They wanted to see if such a commonsense claim would be recognized by the EFSA. It’s kind of an “IQ test” for the EFSA, you see.
Not surprisingly, the EFSA failed that IQ test. Maybe that’s because it is staffed by morons who probably can’t tell their own arse from their eye sockets, and it’s a wonder they can even remember to pull down their own pants before using the toilet.
So now, the denial of this commonsense health claim about water has been made into an EU directive which applies across the entire European Union.
Oh, goody! Now total idiocy is the law of the land…
