Modest drinking health claim debunked

Well, duh.

Blood pressure and stroke risk rise steadily the more alcohol people drink, and previous claims that one or two drinks a day might protect against stroke are not true, according to the results of a major genetic study.”

Drinks companies lied to us?

The research, which used data from a 160,000-strong cohort of Chinese adults, many of whom are unable to drink alcohol due to genetic intolerance, found that people who drink moderately – consuming 10 to 20 grams of alcohol a day – raise their risk of stroke by 10 to 15 percent.

It isn’t good for anyone, America won’t take the data. It’s addicted, Prohibition was required to make it seem glamorous.
Alcohol affects your DNA but the conspiracy people won’t touch it with a barge pole.
Yet Millennials are shamed for not going into debt poisoning themselves.
Why do men die younger, again?

For heavy drinkers, consuming four or more drinks a day, blood pressure rises significantly and the risk of stroke increases by around 35 percent, the study found.

Drinks = units.

“The key message here is that, at least for stroke, there is no protective effect of moderate drinking,” said Zhengming Chen, a professor at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Population Health who co-led the research. “The genetic evidence shows the protective effect is not real.”

Fuck, genetics? How dare you hint at racial differences.

One response to “Modest drinking health claim debunked

  1. I’d like a cohort involving not just Chinese adults. Native Americans have the highest rates of alcoholism, and we will have to include those people who have a history of drinking ale/beer (Scandinavians and Germans). Wine must be considered, as well.
