More on the "no safe limit of booze"

See HERE
The current and next presidents of the Royal Statistical Society – say the report was unbalanced (a nice way of not saying “biased”)  Cheesy

“An hour of TV watching a day, or a bacon sandwich a couple of times a week, is more dangerous to your long-term health,” he noted.

Quote
He finds much to ponder, as the assumptions behind Sheffield University’s model are not documented. One expected outcome of the model is the conclusion that women can drink more, safely, than men can – “which contradicts most of the empirical research in this area,” he notes

Silly silly silly. The original report not this one  Wink

What is moderation?
Maybe for you 4 cups of coffee a day is normal/moderation, for me I rarely have one. Etc etc etc.

The Chief Medical Officer should have resigned for championing such an unscientific and non common sense piece of work. It has lost the support of the public who want guidance on how to look after themselves not zealotry. I bet she's fun to be with (not). I'll just have a soda water   Angry

We all die in the end, the main thing is to have a good and enjoyable life, if I over indulge in something and it shortens my life by a few years so what ?
No point in living a long time and being miserable.
There are plenty of things that might shorten your life some of which you have no control over so live life to the full and forget about the doom mongers they are paid good money to write controversal reports which are about as accurate as some DM articles.
