Major study debunks myth that moderate drinking can be healthy
Blood pressure and stroke risk rise steadily the more alcohol people drink, and previous claims that one or two drinks a day might protect against stroke are not true, according to the results of a major genetic study.

The research, which used data from a 160,000-strong cohort of Chinese adults, many of whom are unable to drink alcohol due to genetic intolerance, found that people who drink moderately - consuming 10 to 20 grams of alcohol a day - raise their risk of stroke by 10 to 15 percent.

For heavy drinkers, consuming four or more drinks a day, blood pressure rises significantly and the risk of stroke increases by around 35 percent, the study found. ...

"Will you go back to drinking?" It's a question I've faced a lot lately.
I don't blame people for asking; after almost 12 months of publicly not consuming a drop, the question of "What next?" has just as frequently crossed my own mind — especially as we hurtled through the festive season and into early 2020.
The answer? Right now I'm still leaning towards… probably not? Highly unlikely? I doubt it? It's not quite a hard no — but definitely not a yes....

....
Drinking less is probably good for your health

Conventional wisdom (and federal guidelines) say that moderate drinking — up to a drink per day for women, or two per day for men — is okay for health. But several prominent 2018 studies found that drinking even small amounts of alcohol may be associated with higher risks of health problems and death, and that the risk of developing alcohol-linked conditions, such as cancer, may outweigh potential benefits associated with booze, such as better heart health....

Not a major study, since it only involves Chinese, and even the article says it could not be done in Western countries because Westerners do not have the same genetic makeup that Chinese have (which makes them intolerant of drinking).
Not to say that Chinese or Japanese don't drink or get drunk. Just that their bodies are different from 'round-eyed' Westerners.
To add to info on the amount of alcohol consumption, USA is at 9.1 liters (of pure alcohol), which is like 21.16 liters of whisky or bourbon or gin at 86 proof, which is 715 ounces per year, which is 13.75 ounces every week!
So, if most of the SA posters are not drinking this much, who is? Think about that! For every ten people you know that do not drink, there are others 'taking up the slack' which means they are drinking more than those 13.75 ounces every week.
It is astonishing, and makes you wonder why more people are not killed in alcohol-related car crashes, industrial accidents, fires, etc.
And then, when you think that the US is way down on the World Consumption, with Belorusia leading the way at nearly double (17.1 liters per capita per year), it makes you wonder how Anything Gets Done in the World!

They were ignorant of what they were seeing happen not ignorant of the effects of new wine which Peter readily acknowledged.

Others falsely accused Christ of over indulgence in both wine and food, that was not ignorance but a known false accusation as our Lord said He came both eating and drinking, obviously not to excess in either area.

Couldn't agree more joy comes from our Lord not from whatever temporary effects one might receive from the consumption of alcohol. I don't believe anyone has advocated the opposite.

Psalm 104:15 “And wine that maketh glad the heart of man...”
“wine” = in Hebrew “yayin” (Strongs H3196)
“From an unused root meaning to effervesce ; wine (as fermented); by implication intoxication: - banqueting, wine, wine [-bibber].”

Isaiah 65:8 “...As the new wine is found in the cluster...”
“new wine” = in Hebrew “tı̂yrôsh” (Strongs H8492)
“From H3423 in the sense of expulsion ; must or fresh grape juice (as just squeezed out); by implication (rarely) fermented wine: - (new, sweet) wine.”

Clearly it is alcoholic.

btw, no one has said that every mention of wine in Scripture is in relation to alcohol on any of these threads.

so...in God's Wisdom, He has allowed for those who are carnally minded to interpret "wine" as alcohol in many instances when it is not and has given the distinction and discernment to those who are spiritually minded

Amen brother, God be praised. What wonderful things he does, in the hearts of men!

"Because alcohol is an addicting substance, I never recommend anyone use it. But, if someone uses it in moderation, I never condemn them or accuse them of sinning."

Amen Frank, this also is my position on the subject.

The older I get, the more I praise him for saving my life, and also my soul. He is truly a Saviour who saves. I love those two words, "Jesus Saves!" And he saves all who come unto God by him.

Note the words of our Lord

Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not

He went on to describe them several times in the rest of the chapter as hypocrites but He did not say that made what they said that was correct, wrong to follow.

Abortion is murder, Unprofitable.
You were pointing out that it was hypocritical to say no to one drug and push another. The fact that abortion is murder was my point, even though there is clear hypocrisy and double standard, we don't make other murders legal just because it is sanctioned against babies. Thus it is not bad, either, to tell young people to avoid illegal drugs (still great advice even from the mouth of a drug addict)despite the hypocrisy and double standard of pushing legal ones.

Alcohol is a depressant (drug).
If the government can make money off of it, any deterrent will probably not work,

I believe the just say no campaign was aimed at illegal drugs and prohibition wasn’t exactly a roaring success at stemming the imbibing of alcohol

Besides hypocrisy is not a good reason to keep laws off the books. We are glad murder is illegal despite abortion and stealing is outlawed even though the government practices legal plunder

One need not do research apart from the Word.
Alcohol bites.

It's worse than any drug out there and it is most readily available.
How can a country say "no" to drugs when it pushes booze?

...
Most of the highest consumption countries are in Europe.
From the article

"The research team - including scientists from Oxford and Peking universities and the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences, said it would be impossible to do a study of this kind in Western populations, since almost no-one there has the relevant alcohol-intolerance gene variants.

But the findings about the biological effects of alcohol should be the same for all people worldwide, they said.

Europe has the highest per person alcohol consumption in the world, even though it has dropped by around 10 percent since 2010, the WHO says, and current trends point to a global rise in per capita consumption in the next 10 years."

Now maybe it is because I don't drink and also the fact that they were looking at average consumption and dividing into per day, but I don't see how a person (using their figures) who drinks either 2 beers or 2 glasses of wine or 2 shots of liquor everyday is said to be drinking in moderation.

Each country has different rates of consumption--check yourself on the internet and you'll find Belorussia leads the way with over 17 liters of pure alcohol annually per capita for people over 15. That is an astonishing amount!
If vodka is 100 proof (50 percent), then that's 34 liters per year, or nearly 3 liters per month.
Most of the highest consumption countries are in Europe.

Moderate drinking can get some people hurt...

My aunt was at a family party, and drank one ounce of beer. A couple minutes later, the family was on the phone with 911 getting a ambulance. She had a severe reaction to the alcohol and it almost killed her...

Alcohol is the only drink that can cause drunkenness. A sin in the light of the scriptures.

I think I'll drink other stuff instead...
