Is Drinking Actually Good for You?

I notice there's no mention of alcohol being a Group I carcinogen nor that WHO considers no amount of alcohol consumption safe due to the cancer risk.
Love reading the comments!
the comments are more interesting than the article. js
i Enjoyed watching The Truth About Alcohol on Netflix. very interesting and factual. They show many aspects of alcohol and how it impacts health in a fun informative scientific way. I was interested to learn that eating six walnuts has more of a positive impact on your blood pressure than drinking a glass of wine. so..there goes that excuse to drink. I guess researches in Europe are now reducing the amount thought to be safe to drink.
Good article, thanks!
I am one of those people who can enjoy the odd glass of wine but can also not have wine or any alcohol for months on end I just find alcohol way over rated.
Everyone has their opinion. Alcohol like anything else, has a different effect on people. Some drink a beer and are sloshed. Some "functional drunks" never seem drunk. My younger of two brothers is very light weight -- I drink him under the table. Not saying drinking is good, but you can't lump everyone into a statistic. People that don't drink (i.e. my mother never drank) have heart disease. Others (i.e. my Polish grandfather) drink alcohol like water and have no heart disease. To each his own.
My podiatrist says even moderate alcohol can increase early neuropathy in some people.

With alcohol, like everything else, some good points, some bad points
Alcohol is a toxin to the body! It is absorbed and stored as FAT!
