I'll Drink To That!

My hearty congratulations to the public health department of the Basque government in San Sebastian, who have blown a fatal hole below the waterline of Nanny's sallow lipped warnings about the dangers of booze.

Hot on the heels of recent research that shows we can eat 16% more than Nanny told us we could, comes research that shows we should drink one bottle of wine or six bottles of beer a day for our health.

One bottle of wine a day, or six beers, cuts the risk of heart disease in men by more than 50%.

That is the result of one of the largest studies of the link between alcohol and heart disease. I would note that the San Sebastian region has one of the highest drinking rates in Europe, therefore they should know what they are talking about!

Unsurprisingly, Nanny's doctors in the UK are already trying to pull the study to pieces.

In the meantime I suggest that we had better make up for lost drinking time.

It's going to be a good Christmas!

Next week research will prove that fag smoking kills swine flu, and that cocaine is a safe and fun way to lose weight (the ultimate cheap cure for Nanny's so called "obesity epidemic", and an effective means of plugging the PSBR via raising tax)!

  1. Oh dear, what a pity, never mind, poor Nanny, her world is falling down around her ears!!

    I am surprised Nanny hasn't banned this report from being aired in this country, after all, she doesn't like decent does she?

    Enjoy your daily bottle of wine responsibly.

  2. Its good to know that I have zero risk of heart disease. Happy days!

    Im sure Nanny will rubbish this report very soon to the cheers of her minions.

    Science is no longer about facts and figures, its about opinions endorsed by Nanny.

    Oh, how very true.. I must remember that quotable quote!

    Maybe they all die of liver disease instead?

    Perhaps I should start drinking, otherwise I will probably die of "Miserable Bastard" disease....

  5. I like neither wine or beer. Does vodka figure into this equation??

    I'd prefer a pan-galactic gargle blaster, myself!

  7. As the t-shirt tells us, beer has been helping ugly people get laid since 1826. Sex is good exercise which helps reduce heart disease.

    Makes perfect logical sense to me.

    So does this now mean I can claim a 6-pack on the NHS? I can see prescription charges rising...

    Sherry is also healthy! (and a link says it helps to fight cancer).

    An dear relative of mine who was a teetotaller and who lived to an active old-age was prescribed guiness by her doctor vitamin B.

    And some very well-qualified medical staff I knew would give brandy for stomach ailments at home.

    see also re medicinal propoerties of health and the fact that "moderate" varies with weight and other factors(near the bottom of the blurb).

    Also acohol and wine are great for treating wounds, as in the Good Samaritan.

    My dear devout relative also made the best sherry trifles and fed me teaspoonfuls as a child when I chattered too much, which reminds me, I think the Victorians used gin to help with teething problems.

    One bottle of wine a day, or six beers, cuts the risk of heart disease in men by more than 50%.

    Ergo ... if I drink 2 bottles of plonk or 12 pints of stingo per day I'm at 0% risk of heart disease!

    I can juggle figures just as easily to get the 'preferred' result.

    Trebles all round! :o)
