Positive effects of moderate alcohol consumption

Postby wllsp » Wed Nov 29, 2006 12:18 pm

It's not sort of current news but I've just found a few links of some interest on the Internet.

So, once my teacher of English who was a doctor from the state of Oklahoma specialiasing in cardiovascular surgery told me that if one drinks 50 grams of strong beverage daily they are likely to have blood vessels in good state even when they are old. I did a search on the Internet and found a couple of links giving some infomation related to positive effects of moderate consumption of alcohol.

The first one is sort of FAQ: http://www2.potsdam.edu/hansondj/AlcoholAndHealth.html

The second one (http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/94/11/3023) is more surprising. It claims that if there were no consumption of alcohol in the USA it would save 100000 lives yearly of those who are younger than 45 and result in additional 80000 deaths among those who are older than 45.

Nothing wrong with self-medicating I reckon. So what if you have a few glasses of red with dinner. The italians have been doing it for centuries including letting their children indulge a little. They live a long time. There are mixed theories about it. But how cares? I like a drink from time to time. If it makes me feel calm and in control fine. Over indulging is another issue.

It's the same here. I really enjoy a couple glasses of red wine in the evening. It makes me fell relax and refresh after a hard working day. To me, it dose not make any sense to live longer but without enjoyment. I would rather live shorter but free to enjoy my life.

The only people who get negative affects from alcohol are the fools.

I agree with you..
I favor fresh orange juice, it's more useful and has no negative affects.
Some people drink too much then he will lost his mind….
Dear vince90.. a few gm of drugs shall make you feel alright.. same thing with cigarettes..
The problem is control it…


I am not sure what you try say here. Have you tried drug before? I have never tried it and I don’t know it’s alright or not if I try a few gm of drug. I’ve been drinking wine for many years but I have never lost my mind. Personaly I think I am ok to enjoy it. Don’t you think?

well, i had already heard some news about this subject as well, and with me happens more less the same as vince and shazzam had said, i really enjoy to drink something from time to time, whether with my friends to celebrate something or just to relax a bit after a tuff day working, i think that it even helps me to rest better :wink: , but as everything in life if you take it to much its bad, the perfect life is somewhere between the healthy and the enjoyable behaviors

I used to drink beer with my friends after lectures at university, but one day I realized that it's can't continue in this way, so I stopped go to bar with them...actually they're bad guys, also they tried to offer me to smoke marihuana, but I didn't, I'm above these passions...
