She's been preaching this rubbish for years .... Her 'Top ten killers' list was first published in 2017 or thereabouts:

From the rhubarb warning, oxalic acid causes kidney stones - who knew :eek:

What a twisted world we live in. Pure water is actually harmful to drink. Mix it with honey and a little salt in the right proportions and it becomes a life saver.

I understand pure H2O by itself wouldn't save you if you were dehydrated, but why is it actually harmful to drink?

Well I ran a London marathon once and plenty of runners got into trouble with hyponatremia from drinking too much during the run. There's this idea that feeling dizzy and nauseous crossing the finishing line is due to dehydration as well so they drink more........ ooops

"Hyponatremia"- Lack of salt/s? Clubbers have done the same thing, haven't they, thinking that they needed to drink water after taking Ecstasy. But drinking too much water is a different matter from H20 by itself being 'harmful'.
(Am v impressed by people able to run marathons!!)

Too many - but not nearly enough
Reminds me of the story of WC Fields in his later years - by this time his Alcoholism whas quickly killing him (he was drinking, I think three bottles of gin a day) So Mae West decided to water down his second and third bottles. His reaction? apparently he said
"M'dear - I don't drink water - fish F*** in it!"​

True story, Ive seen them doing it - well a version of it anyway :)

When the subject of running comes up here I often pass the following comment:

If you ever see me running, Please kill what ever the F*** is chasing me!
