Water. Again?

Water.  Some say it’s healthy for you – some say it’s dangerous [maybe that’s just me trying again to get you to drink rosé].

On the internet I found a site called webMD [whatever that’s supposed to mean] that gave me 6 “Health Benefits” of Water. It was written by a “water” person who calls herself Kathleen M. Zelman  MPH, RD, LD [what the heck kind of degrees are those and why so secretive about your middle name?]

She makes the outrageous claim that drinking water can affect the saliva levels in your mouth [come on] and then gets into the scare tactics from there – mentioning such things as kidneys and bowels in order to frighten you. Why doesn’t she try the “everyone else is doing it” argument?

Let’s look at this realistically.  I haven’t talked to one rational person who would put an odourless, colourless, tasteless liquid in their mouth unless it was a dare.

This summer I’m drinking rosé if I’m thirsty.  That’s what a rational person would do.

Note from the author – This is my 4th attempt in 4 years to use scare mongering tactics to convince people to drink rosé. You can see my other attempts here.
