Drinking alcohol is not only good for the heart – it is good for the joints too. A regular tipple cuts the risk of rheumatoid arthritis by up to 50 percent – and the more you drink, the greater the protective effect.
I love this study because it doesn’t offer stupid advice. You know, stuff like the health benefits only apply when alcohol is used in moderation. What kind of sissy crap is that?
I’m glad somebody finally got it right. You see, what the uneducated like to call binge drinking, enlightened folks like myself and these here scientists prefer to look at as long-term planning. Sometimes I just don’t have the time to drink a measured amount each day, so I take the initiative and get 3, even 4 weeks done in a couple of days. That way I know for sure I’ve got some health in the bank should something come up to keep me away from the pint-sized pharmacy for a little while. I was always told growing up that it never hurts to plan ahead. And trust me, when you’re doing this kind of planning, nothing hurts…at least not right away.
