Bacteria alert

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine... And those who don't.

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 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

I drink a lot of tap water and fruit juices but very little alcohol - I have a fantastic immune system - people are always telling me I look 10 years younger than I am. Conclusions?
I deal in Logic!

when I drank teas and water, people thought I looked 15 years younger than my age; now that I drink teas, water AND wine, my scales tell me I am 15 years younger than I am. conclusions? :wink: :lol:
