Great news...

No, really - look:

"Drinking alcohol every day cuts the risk of heart disease in men by more than a third, a major study suggests."

:)

"The Spanish research involving more than 15,500 men and 26,000 women found large quantities of alcohol could be even more beneficial for men."

Oh yeah baby!

"Female drinkers did not benefit to the same extent, the study in Heart found."

Shame. They should man up a bit :-P

"For those drinking little - less than a shot of vodka a day for instance - the risk was reduced by 35%. And for those who drank anything from three shots to more than 11 shots each day, the risk worked out an average of 50% less."

Oh stop it already...

"The type of alcohol drunk did not seem to make a difference, but protection was greater for those drinking moderate to high amounts of varied drinks."

Get. The. Fuck. In.

My heart >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Your heart

What they don't say is that it makes your brain shrivel up into a peanut. But I suppose that doesn't matter very much for a lot of people.

Aw bless. Your heart will be in great shape. Not that it will matter when your liver is the size of a pea. :):)

Yeah, with all this promotion of alcohol, we need to have a little talk about PROTECTION. Cuz when alcohol and I buddy up, the risk of any boy looking better and better is pretty high.

Just mannin' up here.
