Number of threads will TANK! Study: No Amount Of Drinking Alcohol Is Safe! Drunk posts carshing. But wait...
From August 2018

No amount of alcohol is safe, according to The Global Burden of Diseases study, which analyzed levels of alcohol use and its health effects in 195 countries from 1990 to 2016.

From June 2021

An Oxford University study is causing a stir in the drinks community for its findings about the impact of drinking on brain health. In short: No amount of drinking alcohol is safe for brain function, according to brain imaging data.


And today:

evidence has increasingly shown that there is no level of alcohol consumption that is safe for health," said Champagne, who is also executive director of the InterAmerican Heart Foundation, an organization dedicated to the prevention of heart diseases and stroke in the Americas.

BUT WAIT!

Three weeks ago:

Our ancestors started drinking booze millions of years ago, and we never stopped. Alcohol is embedded in nearly every culture in the world as a social lubricant, marker of taste and cornerstone of celebrations.

If companies tried to bring it to market for the first time today, however, U.S. regulators would almost certainly forbid it. More than 200 health conditions—from cancer to dementia to cirrhosis— are linked to alcohol; it contributes to 3 million deaths globally each year, many via auto accidents and suicides; and in the U.S. alone, more than 14 million people struggle with alcohol-use disorder. It’s dangerous stuff, even though billions of people ingest it with hardly a second thought.

But what if you could get the buzz of a good drink without the buzz-killing side effects? That’s the marketing hype bubbling up from startups around the world making beverages that promise to make you feel tipsy using the magic of plant extracts, not alcohol. These companies claim that after a botanical beverage, you’ll feel more sociable and relaxed without getting drunk, eliminating the hangover (and bad decisions) that sometimes follow a boozy night.

One such startup, the U.K.-based GABA Labs, launched its first product, an “active botanical spirit” called Sentia, earlier this year in Europe. Sentia is made from plant extracts that can mimic the effects of alcohol, and is meant to top out around the feeling of having a glass or two of wine. But its founders want to go even further: They have also created a (not-yet-for-sale) synthetic alcohol molecule that they say can be used to create dupes of any booze on the market, from beer to rum to champagne. The company’s founders don’t yet have enough evidence to legally make claims about their products’ health effects, but the implication is clear: synthetic alcohol could capture the good parts of drinking while ditching the death and disease associated with it.



Something fucky.

Well of course no amount is safe. It all causes damage.

Obviously more alcohol causes more damage.

And less will cause less.

Driving drunk years ago wasn't that big a deal. If you were close to home they would just warn you. I don't recall a bunch of people getting killed. BUT the faqqets texting and driving have killed 10X as many people and nothing?

Drunk driving laws have changed and become more severe than any other law over time. The only time I was almost killed was when a texting driver ran a red light and T-boned me, witnesses stopped and confirmed. I bet she didn't even lose her license.

They have the technology to install in every car that would prevent it, without being too intrusive (sensors in steering wheel, shifter, air monitors, etc. ) but then they don't get the $ and pleasure of public shaming. And everyone likes to "have a few" after work or at dinner.

I don't know anyone who makes good decisions when drunk, that's part of the appeal. Many many people don't get caught, wake up the next day, and regret it and count their lucky stars.

It's the same as anything, commodify and control everything.

Can't just turn on a TV, got to have cable or subscription. Can't work on your own car or appliances, intellectual copyright restrictions. Cigarettes are bad, but here's a vape pen. Pot is bad, but here's a script for xanax.

Alcohol will kill you but this synthetic, fake stuff is totally safe. Wink, wink.

Meanwhile, in the bunkers...

Alcohol is a trashy high. It's basically on the same level as huffing
