Healthiest alcohol: 7 key benefits of drinking alcohol
Do you drink alcohol? Did you know that 86.3% of people do? That’s most people – not including President Trump who is a teetotaler – and yet we’re continuously told that it’s bad for us and to cut down.
Alcohol is indeed bad for our health in large quantities and especially if we become addicted but, as with everything in life, in moderation, it’s not only ok it could even be good for us.

The drink itself can be the stimulant for the conversation in much the same way as people bond over their passion for tea in a tea-house or motor racing by attending the Grand Prix together.
3. De-Stresses You
Alcohol can make you lose your inhibitions and help you to relax so long as you are not drinking alone but are with friends if you drink only every now and again…
