It has been scientifically proven that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we will have absorbed more than 1kilo of Escherichia 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 (or rum, whiskey, vodka, beer or other liquors) because alcohol has to go through a distillation process of boiling, filtering and fermenting and also alcohol kills the Escherichia coli bacteria. So ... Water = Poop Alcohol = Health It is better to drink wine and talk **** than to drink water and be full of ****. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information; I am doing it as a public service.
