Booze Matters - Drink Breaks
I see that Nanny, or rather one of Nanny's chums, has got on a high horse again over Nanny's pet subject of how much we drink.
This time The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) has muddied Nanny's advice about what constitutes "safe drinking", by saying that the current advice by Nanny (21 units for men and 14 for women) implies that it is safe for people to have alcohol every day of the week.
Seemingly "experts" from the RCP now say that people should in fact take a "booze holiday" (no, not to Benidorm), and abstain from booze for 2-3 days a week.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the "experts" do not want you to drink all your allowance in one go either:)
Anyhoo, to further add to people's misery, the "experts" also say that elderly people should drink less than the recommended daily allowance.
Because it damages them.
Surely, by the time one is in one's 70's/80's it matters not one jot if one cuts one's life expectancy by a few months by drinking, rather than living to a miserable incapacitated and boring old age?
These limits are bollocks; as every individual has a different capacity, body mass, food intake, general level of health, lifestyle etc etc.
One size does not fit all, and "experts" should stop trying to use the "one size" argument as an excuse for imposing their lifestyle views on the rest of us.
