    Just don't drink counterfeit alcohol lol

    That's what's been killing so many Russians...

    Deaths from alcohol poisoning have declined by a quarter last year following steps to mitigate the aftermath of counterfeit alcohol consumption, Russia’s consumer safety watchdog has said.

    Rospotrebnadzor, the watchdog, suspended the sale of surrogate alcohol until April 19, 2018, after a bath lotion with a high ethyl alcohol content was blamed for a mass deadly poisoning in Siberia in December 2016.

    “The main effect of the measures taken was a decrease in the number of deaths from alcohol poisoning by a quarter (26 percent) in 2017 compared to previous years,” Rospotrebnadzor said in a statement on Monday.

    Tighter controls have also led to inspections uncovering fewer suppliers and distributors of non-drinkable alcohol consumed as an inexpensive substitute for vodka, it added.

    The watchdog said the surrogate alcohol sales ban in the country with the world’s fourth-highest rate of alcohol consumption was extended by six more months, beginning on April 20.

    Russia’s health minister warned last year that up to 70 percent of deaths among men under 35 were due to alcohol-related causes in some Russian regions.

    Show were 100g or 12.5 units per week equals 'one drink a day'. And show where that is 'deadly'.

    None of the OP articles or this study does.

    Even these studies add so many caveats such as age, gender, overall health and even socio-economic factors. To make general ...over-all statements is great for news articles but have no relationship to the real world.
    Apparently, ONE drink is equivalent to 14 grams of alcohol... which makes those 100g like... 7-8 drinks, not 1 ?

    I heard someone say once that if you live a clean life you won't actually live longer, it will just seem like it.

    I agree. Remember when eggs were supposed to be artery clogging bastards? Now they are considered a "super food" because of the protein. Moderation in everything is reasonable. As far as booze, the liver can only process a ounce an hour...anything over that is toxic.

    But yeah, I'm not giving up everything by a long shot. All those perfectly healthy people are going to be surprised when they find themselves dying of nothing.
    I avoid sugar like the plague. I was diagnosed a few years back with type II diabetes with zero risk factors. I am not overweight, exercise all the time, etc. It came out of nowhere and suddenly like my pancreas just croaked. I think stress was the culprit when my Mom was sick. My biggest fear is being a amputee due to diabetes.

    I saw this movie decades ago and this scene has always stuck out in my mind as I've watched food fads come and go over the years.

    That’s less than what's recommended in many countries. For instance, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Heart Association both say men can safely drink up to two alcoholic drinks a day and women up to a drink a day. An international team of researchers looked at data from 600,000 people in 19 countries, who were asked about drinking habits dating back as long ago as 1964. They were followed for years afterward.

    People who reported drinking more had higher rates of stroke, heart disease, deadly high blood pressure and fatal aortic aneurysms, the team reported in the Lancet medical journal. The most people can get away with and not raise their risk of early death was about five glasses of wine a week or the equivalent, the researchers found. Drinking raises the risk of both cancer and heart disease, and one study suggested that drinking accounts for 15 percent of breast cancer cases.

    They found that the more people drank, the higher their risk of death compared with people who drank less.

    If a 40-year-old man dropped his intake from two drinks a day to around five drinks a week, he could expect to add an average of a year or two to his life, the researchers projected.
