“Wanna go out tonight?” friends ask me at least four out of seven days a week because my answer is literally always the same: “Fuck yes. Do you even know me? I need a margarita ASAP.” So yeah, I like to devour gin and tonics, margaritas, wine, blue ball shots, you name it. Except whiskey. I fucking hate that demon water. Now scientists are trying to ruin my vibe by saying I’m doomed because I like alcohol, and you are too.
Doctors (and Google) usually tell us that drinking in moderation or a glass of red wine every night is good for you. Not anymore.
Sally Davies, UK Chief Medical Officer, recently announced there is no “safe level of drinking.” US Department of Health and Health Services even revoked their statement that light alcohol consumption could lead to a lower risk of heart disease. Many other scientists are saying that any amount of alcohol is bad for you because there is a correlation between consuming booze and risk of cancer.
This isn’t exactly news. In 2010, the World Health Organization declared that drinking was “harmful on a population-wide scale.” Did we listen to them then? No, and chances are we’re not going to listen to them now. Well, at least I’m not.
Naturally, most alcohol companies are livid. They’ve even started calling it “junk science.” LOL. I back up that claim regardless of the truth.
Whatever. If you are trying to find me later (around 2 or 3 a.m.), I will probably be crying in the grass because I ruined my new dress all while eating a taco. Oh, and a mixed drink will definitely be by my side..
