No one likes the news that no amount of alcohol is healthy, but I don’t think any of us are actually surprised. Alcohol has been sold to us but I don’t find it the least bit surprising that it causes health problems such as cancer even in small doses.

First it was a glass of wine a day is good for you, but now it’s suddenly all terrible for you. I think it must be the bottled water lobbyists turn to control the media this week. It’s enough to drive you to drink.
