Drink To Your Health

This just in: Guinness can make you more healthy and more virile.

However, don't break out the six packs yet. In fact, the American Heart Association puts it as follows:

How alcohol or wine affects cardiovascular risk merits further research, but right now the American Heart Association does not recommend drinking wine or any other form of alcohol to gain these potential benefits.

Got that folks? I know, I know, this hurts your plans of justifying your drinking habit under the guise of 'being healthy'. Too bad. The studies are still inconclusive, not to mention that there are many things out there that will give us protective effects, but those effects almost never outweigh the negatives involved with said treatment.

For those interested in why alcohol prevents clots, you can either google it, or just take my word that it poisons platelets. Cheers.
