So every time I see stories about things like Resveratrol, a really great anti-oxident that could be an amazing boon for people all over the world, I get angry, because they always talk about Wine, in this case Red Wine. Yah, they talk about how you have to drink like 1000 bottles of Red Wine a day to get the benefits from this cool stuff. Something I'm sure some people would love to at least attempt, but the benefits of the resveratrol would be absolutley blown away by the damaging effects of all that alchohol. Gosh, dang, that's way too much wine to be drinking every day.
So, when someone tells you to have a glass of wine, if you want to, you can have a glass of grape juice instead, same effect, without the alchohol. Although, I'm sure the taste is very different, I wouldn't know from experience though. Whatever, if you like wine, drink with wisdom, don't over do it, that's crazy nuts. If you don't drink, cool, you don't have to, no matter what anyone says.
I have no idea how long people have been fermenting plant stuffs to make alchoholic drinks of all kinds, probably since the beginning of time or something, but if you use the alchohol right you can keep people healthy and strong and able to work hard and live a great life. If you use it wrong, you can destroy families, and society in general. Beer may well have saved the human race from extinction at one time, but, I doubt very much that people were stumbling around drunk all day long every day, causing everything to grind to a halt. Even in those ancient times, people understood the importance of being sober, or mostly sober, in order to have a functional society, and a happy life.
Happiness is not the bottom of a bottle, nor the barrel of a gun.
Ok, my chest hurts a lot, my heart is going frakin nuts, and I'm gonna have to go lie down. ugh.
