I just signed into Yahoo to check my email and saw that their feature article is on "Health Benefits of Wine" where somebody interviews some guy at some "wine lounge" in Los Angeles. Oh I just want to cry. After all the years I have ranted against alcohol, and this guy obviously hasn't read a thing I've written!
So which is it, Yahoo? You ran a story before about how even in low doses alcohol significantly increases the risk of breast cancer in women, along with liver and rectum cancer! I have written blogs about this! And Yahoo has run other stories about how alcohol is deadly, worse than heroin and cocain. And how it's highly addictive and that alcoholism is underdetected in both women and men!
But as I've said a million times, even if alcohol were healthy, just the fact that it's a mind-altering drug makes it wrong! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! They're after the same "buzz." And it is against my religion! I'm a convert to the Mormon church and we have The Word of Wisdom which we believe to be direct revelation from God saying that alcohol is not for the body! So who do I believe, this wine guy at the wine lounge, or GOD?
Oh articles like this drive me nuts. They almost drive me to drink!
