Good news, everyone! Two pints a day keep heart problems at bay

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.
