From The Daily Mail,
If you like to unwind with a glass of wine, then this might be the news you’ve been waiting for. Because according to a leading scientist, drinking just over a bottle a day won’t harm your health.
Colour me skeptical. But I'm willing to consider trying! Unfortunately, there are two problems with the advice, at least for me:
- Wine has carbs; scotch doesn't. So for my low-carb diet, I probably need to drink more scotch, though probably not a bottle a day.
- For me to drink even a bottle of wine/day, I'd need to start early in the morning because alcohol affects me quickly and effectively (i.e., I'm a cheap drunk).
