    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.

    Remember:
    Water = Poop,
    Wine = Health.
    Therefore, it's better to drink
    wine and talk stupid,
    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!

    Hi BD
    You have a point but alcohol can inflict a lot of physical and mental damage and even in extreme cases cause death.Anyway if we listen to the pundits everything we eat and drink poses a danger to health so I think you just have to have a balanced diet , take it all in moderation and hope for the best.
    My partner is fond of quoting the poet(e.e cummings?) who said "Malt does more than Milton can/To justify God's ways to man".Our favourite Private Eye sites this quite a lot too so it's good enough for me - well in principle because I don't particularly like spirits.
