Recommended Reading: What’s your poison? A special report on alcohol in the media.



Is a small drink good or bad for you?  Does a small glass in the evening give you health benefits?

Read this special report from the NHS for an analysis on “the media’s relationship with research on alcohol, the science behind it, and what all this means for us when we consider raising a glass.”

The report covers:

  • Alcohol stories in the headlines.
  • Do we drink more than is good for us?
  • What happens to our bodies when we drink?
  • Why do scientists have a problem with alcohol?
  • Alcohol and the heart.
  • Alcohol and cancer.
  • Alcohol and pregnancy.
  • Other health issues.
  • Conclusions.

It is a very good read, and the bottom line is, don’t kid yourself that booze is a health drink!
