Is it "better health" to have to rely on anti-depressants to get you through the day?

One has to wonder.

"Anecdotal and scientific evidence have shown that dog owners tend to be healthier than the average person. "

"During a five-year period, lifetime alcohol abstainers were 19 percent more likely to die than regular drinkers, defined as having one or two drinks, three or more days a week, say Virginia Tech University researchers."

Sounds like, church going, moderate drinking, dog lovers is the key to longevity.

That's the trouble with science, its always so fleeting. As our grandparent's science is to us, so will our science be to our grandchildren as theirs will be to their grandchildren and so on and so on. The last science I studied showed that while moderate alcohol consumption might, in come cases be good for your heart, it isn't good for your liver and alcohol in any amount is a carcinogen and therefore increases your risk of cancer. Go figure!

Beef can also be a carcinogen when grilled. Go figure!

@ Brahmabull. I eat lots of fruits and veggies, very little red meat and no alcohol. Therefore, I ingest almost no electron seeking oxidizer carcinogenic compounds. But do get plenty of anti-oxidants with my fruits and veggies which chemically combine with the few oxidizer carcinogens in my body thereby rendering the vast majority of them harmless before they have a chance to chemically combine with my DNA and disrupt the chemical code of protein synthesis (mitosis). Therefore,I greatly reduce my risk of cancer, heart disease and strokes. Its all in D&C sec. 89 revealed in 1823! According to my bio/lifestyle calculator, I should live well into my 90's. Go figure!

"alcohol in any amount is a carcinogen"

Yup. And potato chips , ice cream, chocolate and milk also contain carcinogens and therefore increases your risk of cancer.

I will take my chances with all of the above, including the grilled beef.

Hey, we all gotta die from something......

For someone who believes that "science is so fleeting" you sure posted a lot of science.

Yup, everything we think we know will eventually be proven to be either completely wrong or at least very incomplete. Old science is just that; old science.

Mm using science to validate his lifestyle & disprove science is rather ironic and duplicitous.

That is a great idea, and I hope you do live that long. Me, I eat pretty good, but I eat alot of meat, drink once in a while and exercise. I also do alot of extreme activities so I may not live that long, butI sure will enjoy the ride while it lasts!
