    Well I guess that was a bunch of bullshit. :dontknow:

    "The first update of alcohol-linked cancer deaths in the U.S. in three decades shows that booze can be blamed for nearly 20,000 deaths a year, and it’s not just the heavy drinkers.

    Certainly those who downed three or more drinks a day accounted for most of the deaths from seven kinds of cancer, up to 60 percent, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Public Health.

    But consuming just 1.5 drinks a day -- or less -- was associated with up to 35 percent of those cancer deaths, suggesting that any alcohol use carries some risk."

    I never believed that bullshit.

    The only thing alcohol related that is healthy is a good Malbec.

    Someone gave me a Mondavi Private Selection Malbec. Spelled: From California. I was skeptical, but it was free, and it kicked ass.

    Did not read link. Do they single out red wine?
    At any rate, I'd rather live a shorter time with things I like than a longer life of.....nothing....

    Some other study suggested that drinking a glass of wine a day was good for you because it's a stress reliever. Stress is really really bad for you, so in this way it indirectly helps you.
