Another Salvo in the Prohibition War

Did you know that if you have a beer or two a night with meals, avoid binge drinking and alcoholism, you are a "risky drinker."

Yep.  It's true.

Maybe.  A new study finds, and I quote, "drinking too many beers or glasses of wine a week, even in moderation, could leave drinkers at risk to cancer or stroke."  The English Government think tank 2020health is using this study to encourage the government to enact a 40 pence per unit of alcohol tax (about £1.20 per can of beer) to discourage casual drinking.
