From the BBC, proof that God can be kind to men despite our many flaws
.For those drinking little - less than a shot of vodka a day for instance - the risk [of heart attack -- ed.] was reduced by 35%. And for those who drank anything from three shots to more than 11 shots each day, the risk worked out an average of 50% less.
Sounds good to me. Sadly, it doesn't work out as well for women, but then SOMEBODY has to be sober enough to get me home and make reasonable decisions. Also on the down side, someone at the FDA will get wind of this and decide that drinks can only come by prescription, and organized crime & government will get their usual synergistic boost out of the silliness. Either that, or they will decide that, in line with the decreasing care afforded to people over 55, they won't allow drinking either.
And with that thought, I need a drink.
