we only have pints of Guinness and whisky to keep us going...
And don't forget Potatoes?!
but isn't a little alcohol good for you
See this is were one of the issues I speak of lies...many experts(health officials) have claimed that alcohol in moderation can be beneficial to your health, and now the problem lies within the Defination of moderation!!
No health official will commit to an actual 'measured' amount of alcohol to be defined as moderate consumption.
Scientists have confirmed that there are elements for example, in Red wine, that are quite beneficial to one's health but the Health officials still can't come up with a definative answer on what a moderate amount of alcohol would be to consume to be able to gain these health benefits.
It's like the old saying..."An apple a day...etc." Well...health officials and scientists alike have determined that if you do indeed eat an apple a day, you may end up with rotten teeth?? - Due to the high sugar content in fruit.
So now what we have to say for example is..."An apple a day...blah, blah...but remember to clean your teeth afterwards!!"
I am aware that sometimes there is going to be the need for 'political correctness', but lets be sensible about it!
Thanks for your comments too people!
