To drink or not to..or to...or not to...

A recent study showed that the long held notion of "a glass of red wine a day keeps plaque in the arteries away" is pure hogwash. What interests and amuses me intensely is that immediately another study pops up touting the obesity-control benefits of moderate drinking. Now, I might be paranoid but I feel that some vineyard sent a few cases of the best bubbly, if not a few Woodrow Wilsons, to the researchers.
Moral: Always put "study" in double quotes.

Thats funny, I think the same can be said of chocolates and their effects on sex, alternating between being an aphrodisiac and a repressant.

Can't say vineyards are the only ones "fixin the media" , if Pentagon can tamper Iraqi press... alcohol manufacturers might as well do it.
