I don't drink so no concern to me

Quote:
Even an occasional glass of wine or beer increases the risk of health problems and dying, according to a major study on drinking in 195 nations that attributes 2.8 million premature deaths worldwide each year to booze.

"There is no safe level of alcohol," said Max Griswold, a researcher at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle, Washington and lead author for a consortium of more than 500 experts.

I appreciate knowing the magnitude that it increases risk of various conditions so that I can make my own decisions on how much or how little to drink. No shock and awe here!

Then don't drink. In the meantime, I will still have my drinks on the weekend. I enjoy them, I gotta get some kind of enjoyment at least some of the time.

You only go around once, If I like my wine or beer, after a hard day, or even, a not so hard day....I am going to have one or two. I could get eaten by a gator, or hit by a bus to. Cheers

I could go through my whole life not drinking and get a few extra years, but what’s the point if your not actually enjoying life? I’ll take the trade Off!

It makes sense though. I’ve never believed those studies saying alcohol can be good for you. I feel so much better when I don’t drink. Even a few beers has negative effects for me these days.

And there's drinkers who don't drink. In a Nat'l Geographic Article on sleep, they compare staying awake 24 hours to having three shots of whiskey! Do you want to meet up with someone like this on a highway some night?

These Ďexpertsí canít make up their minds. One year coffee is bad, the next itís good, alcohol is good one year and bad the next, butter is bad one year and then a new study says itís not bad. Everything in moderation. Cheers.
