Wine is better than Water

I just got this in my mailbox. I rarely read, let alone forward, this kind of mails. Yet, it came from a person I trust and who avoids sending stupidities (thanks Yuval!) and I really feel I ought to pay it forward...


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.

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 shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable
information: I'm doing it as a public service.
