Oh, Now Drinking Gives You Cancer?

What is up with science? Why is it so fickle? First we learn that wine helps you not get cancer: now, wine and its friends conspire to give you cancer, at a rate of two or more drinks a day. (So: any amount of drinking after your two lunch-time drinks.) I’m sure that the Daily Mail is explaining this research study accurately, given just how good they are at not being wildly dramatic about science.

Also, fun footnote: apparently 41% of men in Lushcrime Island consume more than 12.5 ounces of alcoholic beverages each and every day, if my metric conversion is correct, when they are not glassing or rioting in football stadiums. Or, rather, whilst they are rioting and glassing.
