I can say from first hand experience of a "#" of years ago that the people who attend BYU are overall living extremely high standards "compared to"...my greatest and most heartfelt concern is for sobriety of pornography. In one article from DN, I read 33% of students in 2007 were experiencing pornography. I am GREATLY concerned that that is higher today. I worry for our future....

As to the health benefits of drinking alcohol, you can get all those benefits by drinking grape juice. It is the same thing, only no aging of the juice, and thus no side effects.


There's "nothing wrong" with moderate drinking? I agree for the population as a whole, although it's clearly a safer bet to avoid it altogether if you want to avoid drunkenness, alcoholism, and liver problems. But, there certainly is something wrong with it if you have covenanted not to do so. Kudos to the vast majority of BYU students who keep covenants and live by a higher standard.
