Drinking is Good!

An interesting article in the Guardian today about drinking, with the following excerpt:

"Drinkers, it seems, feel generally happier about their health than abstainers. A study in 2001 of 19,000 adults found that wine and beer drinkers were more optimistic about their health, however much they drank, which is probably enough to make anyone raise a glass. Still, as the late evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould said: "We ought to be enormously suspicious of ideas that are enormously comforting.""

Now where was my bottle of beer???
