Drinking is good for you, apparently?
    #363662 - 02/13/10 06:09 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

I just watched a new episode of QI, and apparently people who drink between 21 and 30 units per week, on average, have the longest life expectancy! However drinking LESS than 21 is not good for you.

In the UK the reccomended weekly amount is less than 21... rofl!

I'm gonna start drinking more <3

A tiny bit of wine is good for you.

Most things in moderation is good for you.

Have none of you watched QI?

Its BRILLIANT, it dispells all these common beliefs "general ignorance" they call it.

For instance, did you know if you fired a gun, and dropped a bullet at the time, at the same level, they would both hit the ground at the exact same time? Sounds stupid, but its actually true.

Its been scientifically proven, the number 21 was essentially just made up so they had an amount to tell people.

Different alcohols do actually have benificial values.

I'm not saying drinking loads and loads is good for you tho lol.

LOL. using statistics is ridiculous when you're high

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Just because they package it in a show doesn't mean it's true.  And scientifically proven can mean a lot of things, to a lot of different people.  If I was shown an actual scientific study where it said this then I might give it some thought.  Wine is one thing, but alcohol in general is another, especially the amounts you mentioned.  And it being harmful if you don't consume that amount?  I just don't see that being plausible. 

As far as the bullet, well anyone who's taken a high school physics course would know that.  Why wouldn't it?

No I mean 21 units of alcohol.
A unit is a bit less than a glass of wine, or a pint of beer.

To be honest I find it a bit hard to believe as well, they just said "alcohol" ... I mean, surely stuff like vodka can't be good for you in any way?

I might do some research on this, a few google searches didnt turn up anything though.

The Times reveals today that the recommended weekly drinking limits of 21 units of alcohol for men and 14 for women, first introduced in 1987 and still in use today, had no firm scientific basis whatsoever.

"One found that men drinking between 21 and 30 units of alcohol a week had the lowest mortality rate in Britain. Another concluded that a man would have to drink 63 units a week, or a bottle of wine a day, to face the same risk of death as a teetotaller.

A little wine is good for you, Grape juice is better for you than wine. so therefore the alcohol in wine isn't whats good for you.

You can get the same level of antioxidents from grape juice. Alcohol doesnt have antioxidents in it, the grape juice does. Alcohol is a solvent. In no way shape or form is it good for you unless you are using it as mouthwash and spit it out.
