Bottoms Down

  2,600 men living in Eastern Finland were followed for between 11 and 20 years with particular attention paid to their alcohol consumption. Although heavy alcohol consumption has been linked with many medical conditions, in this case, the results were very clear. 

Men who “alcohol binged” more than twice weekly, increased their risk of death from a stroke.

MY TAKE- For a very long time, I’ve been a teetotaler. As it turns out, heavy alcohol drinking leads to “shortgevity” and I’m looking for healthy “longevity!”
Based on this and thousands of good studies, human illness has much to do with excessive alcohol consumption, and since the word “excess” is manipulated into whatever private enterprise wants it to be, why drink it at all if it hurts us? Read this PowerPoint slide I present at some of my lectures and it will all make sense to you~

Alcohol is the mycotoxin of the Saccharomyces yeast, or “brewer’s yeast.” Other mycotoxins besides alcohol can also be introduced into alcoholic beverages through the use of mold-contaminated grains and fruits. Producers often use grains that are too contaminated with fungi and mycotoxins to be used for table foods, so the risk is higher that you are consuming more than just alcohol in your beverage.

Can I get an “Amen?”
