Drink Is Evil - Nanny Hates The Retired

Nanny has managed to hit two of her most hated targets, drink and those who are retired who contribute nothing to her "paradise one earth", in one blow this time by warning that people over 65 shouldn't drink too much.

According to academics at the institute of psychiatry, psychology and neuroscience at King’s College London a fifth of over-65s are drinking unsafe amounts of alcohol, posing a major risk to their health.

Not this guff about "safe limits" again!

When will Nanny get it into here thick head that "one size fits all" simply doesn't work when it comes to what is "good/bad" for our health?

Anyhoo, the analysis of the health records of people living in the London borough of Lambeth found that heavier drinkers were more likely to be male, wealthier and better educated. That pretty well hits the key demographics of people that Nanny loathes!

The study found drinkers were more likely to be white British or Irish, while people from Caribbean, African or Asian backgrounds were less likely to drink.

Nanny's bollocks guidelines state that men should not drink more than 21 units of alcohol a week, and women 14 units. The study, published in the journal BMJ Open, analysed the GP records of nearly 28,000 people in the borough.

Dr Mark Ashworth, from the division of health and social care research at King’s College London, said:
This research highlights that as GPs we need be more aware of the risk of older people, especially men, drinking excessively. Reducing alcohol misuse is important to prevent premature death and serious negative health effects, such as alcoholic liver disease, which are big burden on our health system. 

Alcohol excess carries additional risks in the older population such as falls and confusion. Based on our findings, the elderly who were most at risk were those from the white British population rather than from an ethnic minority, and were wealthier and better educated rather than those from a more deprived background.”
In a nutshell, Nanny feels that the elderly are a burden. That being the case she should encourage people to drink more, so that they die earlier!
