10 ways Christmas is good for your health

Thanks to Dick Puddlecote for pointing out a refreshing antidote to all the politically correct, healthist miserablism we have to endure for 364 days of the year. No. 1 is particularly relevant:

There is overwhelming scientific evidence that moderate drinkers live longer than teetotalers. Moreover, the recent Million Women Study in the UK, which looked at the link between drinking and cancer, found that nondrinking women had a higher incidence of cancer than those women who had one drink a day. American researchers found men consuming two alcoholic drinks a day had a 36 percent less risk of developing diabetes.
Mind you, as always it's wise to ensure you don't exceed your daily 3-4 units, even on Christmas Day.

  1. Thanks for the link, it was a nice soothing piece of 'science', wasn't it? :)

    Have a great Christmas and New Year.
