Well, let me sum this up.Those who drink alcohol to excess have
marital problems. Let me guess. They probably also have problems relating to
their jobs. Those who use alcohol as intended (as most do) suffer
no negative side affects when it comes to divorce.Here is another
conclusion on a study about alcohol use. (published aug 2010) (alcoholism:
clinical and experimental research)"Controlling only for age and
gender, compared to moderate drinkers, abstainers had a more than 2 times
increased mortality risk, heavy drinkers had 70% increased risk, and light
drinkers had 23% increased risk."Moderation appears to be the
key to longevity.
I was somewhat surprised at this story. This is hardly news. Anyone who has had
to deal with people who have substance abuse issues are not shocked to find
their entire lives are a wreck. There is no question that alcoholism is an trait
heavily influenced by genetics. I'm not LDS, but I do not drink because of
the history of alcoholism in my family going back several generations. Having
said that I have no objections to those who can and do drink responsibly.
Moderation in ALL things right?
I wonder who sponsored this unnecessary study with Government funds???
Cancer too a new study discovers. Of course liver disease killed my alcoholic
brother in law years ago, and he knew it was his "moderate" daily, if
not hourly drinking problem that brought it on. Modertation in all
things does not always hold true. Think, about it folks before embracing the
statement. Moderate abuse, fornication and adultry, cheating, lying, murder, the
list goes on.
OK Elcapitan,Moderation in all things. It is a saying. You are
right, it does not hold true for everything.How about this one.
Cyanide - in moderation is OK. Nope. Doesn't work there either.Truth is that in moderation (actual moderation) alcohol is not unhealthy. Nor
is coffee.Heck, a nice cigar a couple times a year wont hurt you
