I was busy getting my slaves in order.
Does that comply with the EU rules?
Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed yesterday after banning drink manufacturers from claiming that water can prevent dehydration.
EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.
Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.
Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: “This is stupidity writ large.
“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and trying to deny us the right to say what is patently true.
“If ever there were an episode which demonstrates the folly of the great European project then this is it.”
Not just the plastic bottle, but the label with the brand name and the microplastics that you drink (often bits of the bottle and lid manufacture)!keep in mind these people don't sell water, (you can get that from a tap whenever you like) they sell plastic bottles
Yes, and if you reuse the cap multiple times then it gets far worse!from what I've read the cap is often where most of the problem originates
Drinking pure distilled water results in death, so the fresh water generators only remove some of the salts, it is reduced salt seawater, not mineral water, the mix of salts is very different to what you would find in a limestone spring. There is a village not far from me where the people on one side of the river used to live into their 90s, on the other side of the river they died in the 30s and 40s. The difference was that the spring on one side of the river comes out of granite rocks and is full of radon gas! You should be careful what you drink, pure water will kill you in hours, any other sort of water is more than just water.After having been at sea where you pretty much drink the same kind of water as you would put on your car battery, tap water are refreshing.
Generating fresh water from sea water have its drawbacks, one being you leave quite a few minerals in the brine in the fresh water generator ( pretty much just boiling seawater at a low temperature in a vacum )
Do you have a reliable source for that? The best I can find is drinking distilled water exclusively can cause a degree of mineral loss that must be made up in some other manner - nothing that even implies that it's fatal.Drinking pure distilled water results in death,
It is not much different to drinking sea water, you end up with a salt imbalance in your blood/cells and then the cells in your body can't transfer stuff in and out correctly and the cells stop working - hypotonic-dehydration .Do you have a reliable source for that? The best I can find is drinking distilled water exclusively can cause a degree of mineral loss that must be made up in some other manner - nothing that even implies that it's fatal.
I think the freshwater generator is supposed to produce a correct salt content for drinking, it actually produces somewhat salty water, but there is a salinity meter on the output which sends some of it back for double distillation, so that what finally exits is a mix of single and double distilled water which should be correct. Definitely better for batteries than sea water, but better to use proper battery water!And i don't think the salt tablets are there to compensate for the lower mineral content in the generated freshwater.
