The White House has launched a “Drink Up” program to promote Americans to drink more water. This is great in theory but (a little birdie told me) the Obama’s don’t drink nasty tap water or toxic bottled water themselves. If they drink what I drink, it’s no wonder Michelle Obama would encourage everyone to drink up…“Drink just one more glass of water a day and you can make a real difference for your health, your energy, and the way you feel,” said Michelle Obama. “Drink Up and see for yourself.” You’ll definitely be energized and healthier if you drink what I drink! If you opt for the tap or commercially bottled water you’ll be doing more harm than good. Too bad the Obama’s live in the White House and not in a Glass House so you could see for yourself what they drink.
Lots and lots of high-profile people drink what I drink…Bill Gates, Donald Trump, Martha Stewart, Beyonce, Tiger Woods, Elton john, Tom Cruise, Magic Johnson and a whole lot more. What do we know that you don’t know? You can bet that you don’t have to remind any of us to “Drink Up”. We’re happy to drink as much of our water as possible.
I sure can’t complain that American’s are being encouraged to drink more water. I spend most of my days preaching the same sermon. I CAN COMPLAIN about the lack of knowledge about water in the professional/medical community and that it takes the White House to spread this message.
The commentary below is in response to the Drink Up message and it is a good reflection of the mainstream medical mentality. It’s no wonder we’re sick!
“There really isn’t data to support this,” said Stanley Goldfarb, a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. “I think, unfortunately, frankly, they’re not basing this on really hard science. It’s not a very scientific approach they’ve taken. … To make it a major public health effort, I think I would say it’s bizarre. “The idea drinking water increases energy, the word I’ve used to describe it is: quixotic,” he said. “We’re designed to drink when we’re thirsty. … There’s no need to have more than that.”
Apparently the University of Pennsylvania pays this guy to be an idiot. A professor of medicine should know that the sense of thirst is the body’s warning signal that you are already dehydrated. The body needs LOTS of healthy water whether you get an urge to drink or not!
