DailyDirt: Don't Drink The Water?!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Drinking eight glasses of water every day might be overkill, but it’s good to stay hydrated. Even though it’s almost the end of summer (for folks in the northern hemisphere at least), here are a few quick links on quenching your thirst.

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Re: Not the average kind of milk.

Don’t think so. My kid is very thin and in much better shape than most of his peers, and I am still thin at 49 years old even though we both drink a pretty significant amount of whole milk every day.

There are certainly some negatives to drinking milk, but crap corn syrup based soda has more, and basically no upside.

This research is interesting to me, as I always drank milk for reasons of thirst when I was a kid and teenager, and everyone thought I was weird. I didn’t start drinking water in any significant amounts until I was in my late 20s.

On the other hand, I’d be very interested in who funded the research, and if there are any dairy industry connections.

Forget Camelbaks if you live in Seattle. Just wear a raincatch — a raincoat that collects and purifies water for its wearer. It ain’t pretty (and it’s probably really heavy), but it’ll keep you hydrated if you’re really paranoid about potable water…

Did they get permission from Frank Herbert’s estate before trying to create clothing that purifies and provides drinking water?
