EU Rules Water Cannot Be Advertised as Healthy or as Protecting From Dehydration

This is what happens when you hand your sovereignty over to a bunch of bureaucrats in Belgium (from the UK Express):
THE EU was ridiculed last night after it took three years to issue a new rule that water cannot be sold as healthy.

In a scarcely believable ­ruling, a panel of experts threw out a claim that regular water consumption is the best way to rehydrate the body.

The bizarre diktat from Brussels has far-reaching implications for member states, including Britain, as no water sold in the EU can now claim to protect against dehydration.

Any producer breaching the order, signed by European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, faces being jailed for up to two years. It took the 21 scientists on the panel three years of analysis into the link between water and dehydration to come to their extraordinary conclusion.
The next ruling expected from the EU is that water is not actually wet.

And don't forget that these are the same people who want to put taxes on the entire world to stop global warming.

"Legally insane" comes to mind.

“The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are, highly paid, highly pensioned officials 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.” -Roger Helmer Conservative MEP
