Could moderate drinking be healthy?
    #11245014 - 10/14/09 12:15 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Research in a wide number of studies has suggested that moderate alcohol consumption (of any kind and not just red wine) is actually healthier than not drinking at all:

I heard that moderate beer and wine consumption is good, but that article is interesting.  I only drink moderately anyway, so this is good to know.  I wonder if moderate pot usage has any health benefits (I know it has medicinal benefits, but benefits for already-healthy people, I mean)?

The problem with alcohol is that it's difficult to be moderate... Youngins tend to drink wayyyy too much. I did. :shrug:

Now, being older and smarter, I drink very moderately. And the beer is wayyyyy better. :yesnod:

my grandmother, who is 97 years old, was recommended by her doctor to have a small glass of wine every day. :shrug:

Ha, I guess it depends on what you consider "moderate drinking". Red wine has many great properties, I have never heard anything about beer, but its definetly possible. My grandparets also drink red wine everyday and they are healthy as horses.

One or two alcoholic beverages per day is beneful for your health, but, passed that number, you draw closer to your grave.

I save all my drinks until the weekend. That's when I got a lot of catching up to do.
