Synopsis

No longer is abstinence from alcohol a rule of good health. Medical science has established beyond a doubt that moderate drinkers live longer, happier and healthier lives than non-drinkers. Why is this good news not fully disclosed to the public? Gene Ford, a lifelong researcher and expert on drinking and health, explains the political, social and religious pressures which have suppressed the truth about the benefits of moderate drinking. The social and medical answers are all in this book. How much is enough? How much is too much? Certainly there is a small percentage of the population who should not drink, but the vast majority, both men and women, young and old, will benefit from daily imbibing. Most important are the Cardiovascular benefits of red wine. Angina, atherosclerosis, blood clots, coronary artery disease, strokes and heart attacks are all reduced by moderate drinking. The surprising benefits of wine as an anti-oxidant, reducing Cancer morbidity and mortality is documented. Over 1500 studies and articles are cited as the science behind the 30 specific health benefits of moderate drinking.

From Alzheimers to Osteoperosis to Ulcers, from the Common Cold to Diabetes to Kidney Stones - here is a panorama of good news about drinking never before assembled in a single book.
