water or wine?

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine.. . 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,
                      Wine = Health  

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

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service.

I thought I read the health benefits come from grape skins. Perhaps one can enjoy grape juice and have similar benefits.

In the 18th century people consumed considerably more alcohol than they do at present.

As for the basic premise -- its false in that E Coli can easily inhabit beer.

Tap water is tested for E Coli on a schedule determined by population -- the larger the population using the distribution system, the more often it is tested. If coliform is tested in the water, they take immediate remedial action.

Must be all that wine and bacteria bugs crawling around in you, PK, lol. I knew there was a reason I liked wine!
I'm sure glad I use filtered water, though, ugh.

You all don't even want to hear about all the other things that are in our foods and drinks, I'm sure! Like hot dogs? I bet you'd never eat another hot dog!

alienshadow, I looked this up just for you:

Beer is made by fermentation cause by bacteria feeding on yeast cells and then defecating. In other words, it's a nice tall glass of bacteria doo-doo.

So, your drinking beer instead of water to get away from "poop" apparently backfired, lol!

By the way, I agree with PK. You don't look well. A little grayish greenish around the gills. Take some vitamins and stay away from that poopy beer! Lol!

Great discussion,  great quote,  but not Ben Franklin.  Bacteria wasn't recognized and named until long after he was dead.  Anyway,  sip on!

RR, thats an interesting observation. A quick check with google yields no solid attribution to the quote, but several variations of it.

I grew up on hot dogs!! I don't want to know what is in them. My husband told me once years ago. I had to wait until the memory went faint before I could eat another one.  Poop, Worms! It is like what goes in should be going out! Some kinda way the two ends got mixed up.  Maybe the hot dogs killed the worms? Ugh!
Is it true that wine is made like Lucy did on "I Love Lucy", when she was in that barrel with purple feet?

you guys are too funny.
it seems the aforementioned quote is attributed to david auerbach, the following are not----

"He that spills the Rum, loses that only; He that drinks it, often loses both that and himself."  -----Benjamin Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanac

“Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.”
Bible, Proverbs 31:6-7       (there's a powerful story behind that one coming to mind, but i'll save it for a more serious post).

good night yall
