Is coffee really dehydrating?
A small study of 50 men by Birmingham University found that drinking four cups of coffee a day left subjects no more dehydrated than when they drank water instead.

PLOS is a peer-reviewed journal.... Do most of the peers also receive money from the coffee industry? By reading the study (which I did), it was obvious the researchers had already decided what kind of a result they wanted to find!
Based on the source of their funding, the researchers had set up the research study to reduce the concerns about dehydration.
"Furthermore, if participants felt they were not allocated a sufficient volume of water at any point during the first trial or indeed if they had too much water, they were permitted to return to the laboratory to have their fluid allocation amended. "
Feel parched? Come to the lab, and we will give you more water! End of research period, nobody appears dehydrated! Conclusion = Coffee does not make you dehydrated!
WHAT KIND OF A SCIENTIFIC STUDY (for dehydration) IS THIS?
BOGUS, fake, spurious, false, fraudulent, sham, deceptive; counterfeit, forged, feigned; make-believe, dummy, pseudo, phony, pretend, fictitious.(any more synonyms?)
It is shoddy research practices and shoddy reporting like this which promotes politicians to reduce funding for real research!
