Beer: more healthful than water!

July 20, 2009

Got this in my email yesterday:

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

beer_girlsAs 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.


Water = Poop,
Wine = Health.

Therefore, it’s better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit.

Historical accuracy note: I’m not sure Benjamin Franklin would have said that, since I’m not sure they knew about bacteria back then.

That aside, this sounds like advice I’m going to take.

    Ben Franklin also said “beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy”.
