While leafing through his fortnightly Private Eye, over his daily corned beef sandwich, Ed spotted the following wine related gem:
“Deadly risk of a bottle of wine over dinner… The middle classes are unwittingly becoming ‘risky drinkers’ by regularly having wine with their evening meal, significantly increasing their susceptibility to conditions such as cancer and stroke.”
Daily Mail, 29th August
“Raise a glass to a healthy old age…Those in their fifties who regularly have a little wine with their dinner are more likely to be free of the ills of old age, from cancer to heart disease, than those who are teetotal or drink to excess.”
Daily Mail, 7th September
