Benefits of Drinking Scotch

Hello All,

    How did the week start? Usually tuesday is the most moodiest of all days when your monday doesn’t start well. At my end, today ain’t so bad. We went shopping for rocking chair for the youngest friend I have and drank a wonderfully made “paya” (traditional breakfast, viz bone soup). Today, I have a note on benefits of enjoying your favorite scotch.

  • Research evidence report a strong, consistent relationship between moderate alcohol consumption and reduction in cardiovascular disease in general and coronary artery disease in particular
  • Alcohol consumption is related to total mortality in a U-shaped manner, where moderate consumers have a reduced total mortality compared with total non-consumers and heavy consumers
  • A study in France found moderate drinkers to have a 75% lower risk for Alzheimer's Disease and an 80% lower risk for senile dementia
  • A recent study found that alcohol consumption is associated with a significantly reduced risk of developing arthritic conditions including Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Osteoarthritis (OA), reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and spondylarthropathy

  • An analysis of data from 12 prospective studies that included     760,044 men and women who were tracked for seven to 20     years found that moderate drinkers are about 30% les
  • A multi-center case-control study of subjects in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Ireland and the Czech Republic found results "consistent with previous studies, suggesting a protective effect of alcohol on HL
