I KNEW it!

Good news, everyone! Two pints a day keep heart problems at bay

From el reg

Moderate drinking is good for you, a BMJ-published study has found, directly contradicting the advice of the UK government's "Chief Medical Officer", who advised last year there was "no safe level" of drinking. A daily pint reduces risk of a heart attack and angina by a third, a big data study of Brit adults has found, while total abstinence increases the risk by 24 per cent

 

Mines a pint! Cheesy

On the other hand it likely increases the risk of cancer, dementia etc. It's just a matter of deciding what you would rather have kill you.

Re: I KNEW it!

To my mind there is not a "safe level" to living.

I love my home brew, love having a bacon sandwich, and will eat cheese until it comes out of my ears.

Mines a pint from my stash under the stairs. Pork pie anyone?

Re: I KNEW it!

Two pints a day.... could also take you over the drink drive limit....   be careful... when you drink them...

 

and be aware of when you drive after drinking them...

Re: I KNEW it!

....so it's OK to drive after a couple of pints @shutter as long as you are "aware"?

Best keep clear of this stuff then Wink

Finally, some scientific study I can agree with, beer, cures all that ails ya, and as Homer Simpson said, "Here's to beer, the cause of and solution to all of life's problems!"... Funny

My old Granny used to love the Sanatogen Wine I used to buy for her.

Even her doctor used to say it was good for her.

Hmm... So.... "Guinness is good for you"...  says some old Toucan ..    but Two Cans for 4X would be better, however, when you get older, you need Sanatogen because it "fortifies the over forties"...   

 

Crikey me.Shocked .. people of 60 upwards would have been ancient monuments then...  ! . !

Re: I KNEW it!

@shutter here in Scotland, 1/2 a pint and you are over the limit.
But since I only drink at night, and at least 12 hours before I need to drive then no problems.

Re: I KNEW it!

@HairyMcbiker ... Has it actually made a difference to the drink driving "captures"...  in Scotland, compared to the rest of the U.K . ?

 

 

 

I don`t drink very much at all... maybe manage about 4 cans of Morrisons Bitter in 6 months...  it is a "rare occasion" for me to have a beer... If I do, it is usually with a meal early on a Sunday evening...

 

I value my licence. !
