In other words, don't muddy the waters. Talk to your doctor about treatment recommendations and risk for drug-alcohol use. ...Read more

Vodka is less likely to cause headaches because it is pure alcohol, but it also can. ...Read more

Can you drink any kind of alcohol beverage to maintain good health or is it limited to 1 glass of red wine?
Little impact: This old story is typical of the problems that are caused by retrospective studies -- self-reports without the possibility of controlling for other variables.
