Wine Drinkers

I was at a grocery yesterday and there was a wine-testing booth. So naturally, for everything that may come as free people will surely hover around, especially if it has alcohol in it! When I got to the counter, I saw a brochure where it said abstainers are more likely to die from all-cause mortality and cancer than drinkers. That surely made me laugh.

So I searched medline, google scholar and Bandolier. Guess what, I was the one to be laughed at. Light to moderate wine and beer drinking do seem to confer a protection against death and cancer.

Hmmm…. But should we start advocating wine during meals? I can’t drink alcohol without looking like a drunkard after one drink. I’m allergic to ethanol.

So to everyone else, Cheers
