I know it’s been a while since I’ve updated the site. Been too busy and/or sick lately to do much. But it’ll get going again, I promise!
Today’s story is the recent release of data from a 12 year Harvard study on alcohol consumption. Their findings show pretty conclusively that moderate, regular consumption of alcohol has definite health benefits, especially for preventing heart attacks.
Their data shows that drinking on a daily basis (only one or two drinks) has the best benefit. Drinking the same amount, but concentrating it on the weekends, also has benefit, but not quite as much.
It also showed that the type of drink didn’t matter. Red wine, long purported to be healthy, showed the same results as beer or liquor. The keys to the benefit is regular, moderate alcohol consumption.
