    It's a good thing he stopped chewing at 104, that stuff can kill you.

    Do I want to get very old, sit in a chair all day and piss in my pants or get to a certain oldish age and go out with a heart attack? I'll choose the heart attack route please.

    Right, just need a lager.

    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.
    If you can only have one drink a day what is the sense in drinking?
    Thanks from Dragonfly5

    And they contradict each other. I think heredity accounts most for longer or short lifespans.

    Personally believe alcohol is a very mild poison.

    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.

    Longevity is why when I drink, and I always have more than one.

    Just kidding. I drink to get drunk; that's why I always have more than one.

    God, I wish more people had drank more.

    Would make traffic so much easier.
