In brief: Cost vs benefit

I believe the benefits of alcohol are over-hyped.
I, personally think 4 drinks a week is the max safe limit. The info about "2/day" is good for the heart (improved good cholesterol + some antioxidants) is true, but it is bad for the brain, liver, heart muscle, bone marrow, male-female relationships, safe driving.... Hrs www.Thepmc.Org.
