    Right, and look at the people who do that and drop dead of a heart attack anyway for totally unknown reasons.

    An ounce per hour of what? An ounce of liquor is different from wine or beer, etc........

    More and more, they are finding that genetics determine how long we live, whether we get this or that condition, moreso than what we do or don't do.

    I remember as a kid my Dad, who pours copious amounts of salt on food, my SM trying to take it away. Using every trick. His mother sent an article saying that it doesn't matter unless one already has high blood pressure, so he said HA, and resumed his salt intake. I think a lot of things are like that.

    I have pre-hypertension. So I do now have to manage my stress and some other things, but I probably couldn't have prevented it.

    The reference is to ethyl alcohol, NOT one ounce of an alcoholic beverage.
    Your average 12 bottle of beer will have approx. one ounce of ethyl alcohol, as will an 8 ounce glass of wine, one average cocktail or mixed drink, etc, etc.

    ok, that is what I had understood. One beer, one shot, ___ ounces of wine are equal. And one is sober still if intake is 1 per hour or less, but I never looked at effects on the liver the way it was stated above.

    So having a buzz or being drunk is a side effect of toxicity?

    Well, I'm not a M.D. but I think that would be a good way to put it. One has consumed more ethyl alcohol faster than your liver can filter it from your body.

    My Grandfather lived to be 106 years old. Not only did he drink a shot of whisky or two every day, he ate fried eggs and bacon every morning and the eggs had to be cooked in the bacon grease. He also chewed tobacco until he was 104.

    Ouch, that sucks. I'm pretty low sugar, sort of; but I have some risk factors (no family history that I'm aware of) and I'm nowhere near it. Today, anyway.
