This is EXACTLY what we needed right now: more studies that contradict previous studies!

The Washington University School of Buzzkill Medicine in St. Louis (confused, yet?) says that daily glass of wine you've been drinking for your sanity health is increasing your odds of dying prematurely.

I'm glad they specified "prematurely", because we all have 100% odds of dying already, and I'm not ready to give 110% to a cause like that.

The amount of moderate boozing that science had previously deemed healthy - one to two drinks, four or more (always more) times a week - now increases your early deathing by twenty percent compared to party poopers that drink three times per week or less.

Their findings found (???) that even though that glass of wine might increase your heart health, it'll also increase your cancer risk. The study found consistency across all age groups (18-85).

Take this study with a grain of salt, though: funding came from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism, and the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health. I'm not saying that they're lying, just that they might be a bit biased.

Something we should look at in many parts of our lives, actually.

What do YOU think? Will this deter you from drinking as much?
