                  "Now, that's what I call a camp fire..". lol. Good riddance as far as I'm concerned, but burning it and putting into the atmosphere seems kind of dumb.

                      Yeah, but look who conducted the study, The Global Alcohol Producers Group. Just kidding, but I wouldn't be surprised. haha

                        I was initially skeptical too so I checked - the "Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research" is funded by the National Council on Alcoholism, which was set up by Alcoholic's Anonymous.

                          Its not the amount (or lack of) alcohol consumed, but the environments these test subjects tended to be in. Mainly, people that don't drink die more quickly because they're poor, and have limited access to health care and quality foods. People who tend to drink in moderation do so with friends, and get the added benefit of the health being social brings.
                          You don't pay your bills with counterfeit money, so why feed your body with counterfeit food?

                              Actually, if you read the study, they accounted for socioeconomic biases.

                              And I don't know what poor people you guys know, but the ones I know drink WAY more than the rich folk.
