A Little of What You Fancy - Liquid Bread

I was gemused and heartened to read a wee while ago some sensible words of wisdom from Professor Charles Bamforth of the University of California, and author of Beer, Health and Nutrition,  about the benefits of drinking.

The professor was musing about those people who, during January, go "cold turkey" and give up booze for a month in the belief that it is good for them. The professor is of the view that drinking regularly throughout the post-New Year period would have had far more health benefits than going cold turkey.
He is quoted by the Independent:
It’s well known that drinking too much can cause serious health problems. Many people don’t realise that drinking in moderation has significant health benefits and that moderate drinkers have a longer life expectancy than non-drinkers.

Regular moderate intake of alcohol is good for the heart and blood circulation.

The key is a little and often.  You are seriously mistaken if you think that having a month without drinking will protect you from the effects of excessive drinking for the rest of the year.

The best advice is to drink moderately throughout the year

The great thing about beer is that it is low in alcohol and brewed from natural raw materials so it’s a good source of important nutrients such as antioxidants, B vitamins and dietary silicon that promotes strong bones. Indeed beer used to be known as liquid bread”.
Nanny should stop trying to interfere in our drinking habits, and allow us to act as adults wrt sensible imbibing of liquid bread!
