I'm a bit like Withnail
Well, more like Richard Grant. He's famously unable to metabolize alcohol, thereby rendering him by necessity a life-long teetotaler.
Anyway I looked through the linked article, they say it's an observational study so no firm conclusions can be drawn regarding cause & effect.
So, the Reg has blown this out of proportion. Click bait article. Fake news, even!
Personally I don't drink, I don't even care about alcohol. The only reason I'm participating at all is to point out, yeah the actual report doesn't conclude what the Reg says.
