    Sooo.. Do you consider drinking one to three drinks per day as moderate drinking? Why is it that 1-3 drinks a day is moderate but when it comes to snack foods that 2 or more a day is a no-no.

Through purging the toxic herbs, other oxidants in the body get purged, and the skin clears up. Often, these herbs are introduced to the body through alcohol solutions, like warmed rice wine, because the alcohol will enter the liver directly and carry the herbs with it.
    Which toxic herbs?

    First off, the study defines moderate as 1 -3 drinks a day.

    Secondly, what are you talking about? Are you really equating ADULT alcohol intake to a CHILD being permitted to eat unhealthy "snacks" on the taxpayers dime?

    I just find it ironic that some of the food/health police peeps have no problems with people drinking that much a day but get all outraged over the thought of anybody eating a few snacks a day

    I'm sure you would find it ironic since you made it all up.

    No one has gotten outraged about anyone eating a few snacks a day. I couldn't ****ing care less. I also couldn't care less if people choose to drink themselves into oblivion 24/7. The only part I care about is if I'm footing the bill for it.

    Need some more straw for your next strawman?

    Regardless, you wouldn't be "footing the bill". It's not like either your tax dollars would go into a more efficient program or even that it's "your" tax dollars anyways.

    lolwut? Everyone, I mean everyone, has the same exact likelihood of dying: 100%.

    The issue is not the likelihood of dying, it's the timing of it.

    Drinking thins your blood making it less likely for you to suffer a stroke or a heart attack.
