Sadly, there are plenty of actual doctors who help promulgate this particular fantasy health meme. If you can drink it, it has more water in it than it will "use up" from digesting it. All the fringe cases have vastly more obvious side effects that will kill long before you die from dehydration.

A human being produces enough water that closed system life support must include ways of removing it from the environment. If you live on beer, crackers, and beef jerky, it's the salt that's going to kill you.

Well, it might be bar fights, depending on where you drink.
