Think, there's NOT ONE good thing about alcohol from a nutritional point of view.
It's the industry paying for studies saying that it has a somehow positive effect on our health. These effects can also be triggered by other things.
Tell the truth: It's just a social thing...losing shyness, being cool, enjoying a good meal and a glass of wine...still "poison" and a liquid that changes you in one way.
Human beings have always been going for a good jag.
