Put down that glass of wine and dump out that martini. Medical researchers believe alcohol may do more harm than good.

CBC News: “In this week’s issue of the British medical journal The Lancet, an international team of researchers points out that alcohol is linked to more than 60 different medical conditions.

“Overall, four per cent of the global burden of disease is attributable to alcohol, 4.1 per cent to tobacco and 4.4 per cent to high blood pressure,” writes lead researcher Robin Room, of Stockholm University in Sweden.”
