We can hear the debates starting before we even begin talking about this topic...

A glass of red wine a day is good for you. Everything in moderation. My grandfather drank every day and lived to be 95 years old.

We totally understand, and are not trying to deny your experience or beliefs, but will you just hear us out for a few minutes?

First off, nobody is telling you not to enjoy your favourite beverage...especially when getting together with friends, out on a date, or after a hard day's work.

However, let's live in reality, please.

Alcohol is not good for you. Are there other ingredients in some types of alcoholic beverages that may meet requirements for your body? Possibly, but you can easily get those nutrients from other less toxic food sources.

Nobody is telling you not to drink, just to know that drinking is not good for you - that's all.

The purpose of this podcast is to discuss the results regarding alcohol consumption from a recent peer reviewed study.

Here Is What We Covered

  • The conclusions from the study. If you consume any alcohol at all you won't like what it has to say. Please don't shoot the messenger on this one, we'll give you our interpretation on the data.
  • The limitations of the study. No study of this size is perfect. This study was a meta-analysis of many observational studies. That doesn't come without any flaws. Find out what they are and how they impact the potential results.
  • The mechanism of why alcohol isn't good for you. How alcohol mess with your physiology and metabolism.
  • What we think you should do with this information. There is something to be said about happiness and joy, especially if you like drinking.
