Here's Why I'm a Skeptic on "Scientific Consensus"

Recently the EU banned bottled water manufacturers from claiming on their bottles that water can help prevent dehydration, claiming that this was not provable.  Violations carry up to two year imprisonment.
"...last February, the European Food Standards Authority (EFSA) refused to approve the statement.
A meeting of 21 scientists in Parma, Italy, concluded that reduced water content in the body was a symptom of dehydration and not something that drinking water could subsequently control.
Now the EFSA verdict has been turned into an EU directive which was issued on Wednesday."
 Just transfer this "scientific finding" to global warming or any of a dozen other liberal causes that restrict free trade and business or western lifestyle.  Junk science.
