Top 10 alcohol health claims

6. Alcohol may cut arthritis risk

Drinking more than three glasses a week for at least 10 years halves the risk of rheumatoid arthritis, researchers found.

The study of more than 34,000 Swedish women found the risk among those who drank more than three glasses of alcohol per week in 1987 and 1997 was 52% lower than those who were never drank.

The researchers gathered detailed information on alcohol consumption, diet, smoking history, physical activity and education level between 1987 and 1997.

    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!

  2. Derek says:

    ‘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!
