Neither alcohol or tobacco are bad for us in moderation. Rather it is the abuse of things that is harmful.
Our bodies provide an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase, which can easily metabolize moderate amounts. In excess, alcohol becomes toxic, hence the word intoxicating.
Ease is the opposite of disease
In a world of great stress, one or two drinks a day can help to ease the mind and body. Ease is the opposite of disease.
Wine, especially the red variety, is nature’s best source of resveratrol. This compound protects DNA, thus assisting in the process of aging. Stout has long been used to help mothers experiencing difficulty with milk production.
Moderation and enjoyment are keywords. Alcohol is known to decrease inhibitions as it very rapidly crosses “the blood/brain barrier”. It is also known to be a depressant.
It all comes down to use not abuse, and having fun, while being responsible. While I will never condone drunken stupidity, I will always condone singing, dancing, and enjoyment of life!
Use not abuse!
Remember, one glass of wine, one bottle of beer, and one shot of liquor all provide enough alcohol to put us at the legal driving limit. It is very good to drink one glass of water for each drink taken. It requires one hour to fully metabolize each drink. So please do that math before you drink and drive.
