Science Says Any Amount Of Alcohol Is Bad For You, So There Goes Your Weekend
When it comes to drinking in moderation on the weekends, we all know how it goes.
One minute youre sitting on your friends rooftop responsibly sipping a vodka soda, and next thing you know, youre knocking back shots like its nobodys damn business.
Fast forward to 4 am, and youve consumed enough booze to put a baby elephant into a coma, destroyed your favorite pair of heels, booty called your ex, stuffed five slices of pizzadown your throat and someone managed to capture every cringe-worthy moment along the way via Snapchat.
Yep, sounds like a pretty successful night.
Weve often been told that binge drinking is bad, but drinking in moderation is perfectly fine for your health.
However, it turns out we may have all been living a booze-infused lie.
Sally Davies, UK Chief Medical Officer, recently stated there is no safe level of drinking, and the US Department of Health and Health Services even rescinded their statement that light alcohol consumption could lead to a lower risk of heart disease.
Yep, thanks to public entities like the World Health Organization, alcohol has certainly been getting a pretty bad rep lately.
Over the last 10 years, WHO has been studying the dangers of drinking. And in 2010, they declared drinking was harmful on a population-wide scale.
Now, many scientists have claimed that any amount of drinking is bad for you, since there is a correlation between alcohol consumption and risk of cancer.
As you can imagine, alcohol companies arent too pleased about a bunch of lab coats badmouthing their products, so many boozy brands are now calling out these claims as junk science.
This all leaves us with one very important question: Which side should we be believe?
Well, awinner has not yet been declared in this boozy junk science battle, so in the meantime, I think we should all grab a drink and wait for this debate to unfold.
