I heard different ideas on the benefits of a shot of vinegar a day. One con said it ages the liver. One pro said that it thins the blood, which is good. What is your opinion?

I'm pretty sure I'd rather drink dog pee. Anyway, aspirin is easier to dose and also thins the blood.

Seriously? You would rather drink dog pee as opposed to a product that is probably in several foods you eat each day?

I love vinegar. I don't think it will do anything special to your body if you take a shot everyday.

Pros:
It will wake you up in the morning and clear out your sinuses.

Cons:
You will have vinegar breath.

I wouldn't. I tried it (1/3 vinegar, 2/3 water) and felt nauseous. It was like I was having a heart burn, and about to throw up, at the same time. I kept burping and didn't feel any of the so called benefits at all. I guess everything about it is a con for me.

A shot of vinegar, even used daily, will not damage the liver. A glass of wine per day is far worse.
