To my friends who enjoy a cocktail from time to time...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 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, Beer = Health
Therefore, it's better to drink beer and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of you know what.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service.
