News to Celebrate!

From Best of the Web:

We'll Drink to That

A new study shows that "drinking a moderate amount of alcohol--up to four drinks per day in men and two drinks per day in women--reduces the risk of death from any cause by roughly 18 percent," Reuters reports.

We drink moderately, and we suppose every little thing helps, but that still means there's an 82% chance we'll eventually die. Is there anything else we can do to increase our chances of immortality? Apparently a fifth drink isn't the answer: "Men who have more than four drinks per day . . . increase their risk of death," Reuters says. That means if you consistently drink five or more drinks a day, your risk of death will actually exceed 100%.

Does "any cause" include driving at Top Speed? Inquiring minds want to know!

The more scientific studies we get like this, the better our industry looks. I suggest that we all execute a study to support this finding, and I would be honored if I could lead the group in supporting this finding 'post haste'.
