A beer to your health; even more for better health!

Some of the best news you'll ever read.

Drinking alcohol every day cuts the risk of heart disease in men by more than a third, a major study suggests.

The Spanish research involving more than 15,500 men and 26,000 women found large quantities of alcohol could be even more beneficial for men.

I think I probably fit into the large quantities of alcohol group.

For those drinking little - less than a shot of vodka a day for instance - the risk was reduced by 35%. And for those who drank anything from three shots to more than 11 shots each day, the risk worked out an average of 50% less.
I'm confused does that mean my risk is 50% less, or does that mean it's 17.5% less?

Either way, drinking lowers the risk of heart disease; according to that study.

Thanks to smart@ss for sending me the link.

I'll stick to beer this holiday season. It would be healthier for me.
