Fwd: dehydration

'EU bans claim that water can prevent dehydration

Brussels bureaucrats were ridiculed yesterday after banning drink manufacturers from claiming that water can prevent dehydration.

EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove the previously undisputed fact.

Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.

Last night, critics claimed the EU was at odds with both science and common sense. Conservative MEP Roger Helmer said: "This is stupidity writ large.

"The euro is burning, the EU is falling apart and yet here they are: highly-paid, highly-pensioned officials worrying about the obvious qualities of water and 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."'

Maltitol - The Problems With Maltitol

Today I bought on clearance 3 "no sugar added" mini fruit pies from
Wal-Mart. They were cherry, blueberry and apple. This was an impulse
purchase. I was tempted by the low price and the "no sugar added"
on the label. I ate them all. I was hungry.

I should have know better. I read the ingredients a little too late.
They all have Maltitol. I have run into Maltitol before. Usually it
gives me gas really bad. Although it is frequently used as a sugar
substitute in a many different products, maybe it should be illegal.
"Sugar alcohols" in general tend to cause intestinal problems...

Salad

Had this for lunch …

 

Hot Breaded Veal Sandwich...A deep fried breaded veal patty served open faced on white bread with mashed potatoes smothered in gravy.

 

But I didn’t feel very full.   It is mostly carbohydrates.

 

I went back and got a salad that was mostly just vegetables.  The combination of the two filled me up.   I needed some fiber to go with my carbohydrates.
