Dr. Douglass, Defender of Moderate Drinking

I have just received this commentary from Dr. Douglass in my inbox. Apparently, researchers at Oxford are putting forth the idea that even moderate alcohol consumption is unhealthy. Of course, we never saw this coming!

Dr, Douglass does not agree with this flawed hypothesis:

These teetotaler researchers claim their ridiculous new limits would save 4,500 lives a year in the U.K. alone — including 3,000 lives from cirrhosis of the liver and 2,600 lives from cancer.
Yes, I know — that adds up to more than 4,500. Either a typo, or the researchers are terrible at math. Or maybe they’re secretly drunk.

I’d say any of these things are possible.

To read the rest of Dr. Douglass' refutation, follow the link below.
