Revealing extraordinary medical evidence that alcohol is good for you

Buy Now from Amazon The Good News About Booze cover

The relentless message from the medical authorities is that booze is bad for our health. Doctors advise us to lay off the drink because it causes a whole range of diseases - from liver problems to cancer…. or so they say.

However, over the last thirty years, medical science has been accumulating a mass of evidence showing that the demon drink may in practice not be terribly harmful (at reasonable intakes), and indeed has a whole range of beneficial effects on our health – findings which the medical profession have been keeping very quiet about.

Science writer Tony Edwards has spent months rigorously combing through thousands of these scientific papers – many published in prestigious medical journals. He has uncovered evidence not only that alcohol’s perils have been overplayed, but also that people who drink within sensible limits enjoy substantial health benefits in a long list of conditions – including even cancer.

The result is The Good News About Booze, a book which leading British cancer expert Professor Karol Sikora says reveals “surprising evidence of obvious benefit from alcohol. Of course, the book will be labelled as controversial”, he says, “ but its value is that it could lead to a much better understanding of all the complex issues involved in alcohol and health. Here you have all the data you need to make your own decision about how much and what to drink.”

                                                                    and is, in my view, accurately presented.”
