Saké to me!
The data from one of THE most groundbreakingly crucial studies ever conducted in the history of all of mankind is in — and it legitimates my entire existence!
::: as opposed to the evil studies contradicting this information that I choose to blithely ignore 🙂 :::
“A Japanese examination of the effects of social support on the relationship between drinking and cardiovascular disease has found that the health benefits of light-to-moderate drinking are more pronounced in men with greater social support.”
For you UNscientifical type personages out there, that means that drinking = good but drinking + buddies = VERY good!
::: Another round for my friends, barkeep! :::
The study examined 19,356 men between the ages of 40 and 69 and divvied their alcohol consumption into seven categories: never, past, occasional, 1-149, 150-299, 300-449, and Cookie’s Category: the hella sloshy ≥450 grams/week.
::: they saved the best for last … :::
The results revealed that moderate social drinking has some pretty poz health bennies!
::: I’ll drink to that! :::
“Heavy drinking is associated with a greater risk of stroke.”
::: Totally why I don’t do keggers! Stroke schmoke! You could get a hernia lifting that shit! :::
“Light-to-moderate drinking has been linked to lessening the risk of stroke and coronary heart disease and new studies show that more social support is linked to less risk of mortality and cardiovascular disease.”
“Drinking with a good friend appropriately makes you feel happy and healthy,” said Takeshi Tanigawa, a professor in the department of public health at Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine.
“So drink with good friends for health.”
If you say so!
After all, who am I to argue with science?!?
