Top 10 alcohol health claims

7. Two glasses of wine “improves quality of life”

Research from the Boston University School of Medicine has shown that by drinking alcohol regularly and in moderate amounts, middle-aged adults may improve their quality of life.

The quality of life was measured using the Health Utilities index, which looks at factors including dexterity, emotion, cognition and mobility.

They studied 5,404 Canadians at age 50, and continued to observe them over a follow up period.

The  study finds that those who drink in moderation – no more than 14 drinks a week and no more than three a day for women and four a day for men – have better overall scores than those who abstain completely.

    So if you drink 50 glasses of red wine per month, that’s 12 per week, or 2 per day, with a day off, you will be 100% free of lung cancer. But it says nothing about smoking with those glasses of wine. A miracle cure!

    ‘The beneficial mental effects of alcohol were found when a person drinks up to about 30 drinks per week, and increased with consumption.’ So the garbage that pours forth after a night on the booze isn’t just someone being totally pissed, they are being far to clever for us to understand. No, don’t think so, they are just pissed and being stupid.

    ‘Lose weight with a glass of wine’…and add kilos with litres of beer!
