Alcohol Causes Cancer

New evidence of alcohol industry distortion of science

It is well known in the scientific literature that alcohol is a causative agent in at least seven different types of cancer including two of the commonest – breast and colorectal – but also including mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus, and liver. The evidence is based on over 100 studies since 2007, and the risk is not simply associated with heavy drinking; quite moderate amounts of alcohol are associated with an increased risk of cancer.

However, the public is surprisingly ignorant of these facts and one of the main reasons for this appears to be distortion of the evidence by the alcohol industry.

Alcohol Related Harm

And how to resolve this problem

Temptation

The concern of authorities in most countries and what is most talked about in the media is the harm associated with illegal drugs such as cannabis, heroin and the new synthetic drugs. The authorities in most countries have accepted that tobacco is harmful to human health and they are beginning to do something about it, yet many problems remain with alcohol.

Twenty-five to forty percent of all patients in U.S. general hospital beds (not in maternity or intensive care) are being treated for complications of alcohol-related problems and the total cost of alcohol problems is $175.9 billion a year according to the Alcohol Policy MD.

A 2009 study, applying

What an offer

Humour

Yesterday morning I bought two six packs of beer on sale at the Liquor Store in Rhyde.

I placed them on the front passenger seat of the ute and headed back home.

On the way I stopped at the service station where a drop-dead gorgeous, almost blonde was filling up her car at the next pump.

It was very warm and she was wearing tight shorts and a light top which didn’t leave much to the imagination.

When she’d filled up and went to pay, she glanced into my ute and saw the beer, then she bent over and knocked on my passenger window.

With her breasts almost falling out of her skimpy top she said, in a sexy

Getting Drunk

Under the influence of alcohol

A man had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the pub is closing. So the drunk stood up to leave and fell flat on his face.

He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he’ll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside, he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the four blocks to his home.

When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time

Warning to Men

Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties and local pubs to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink from any woman.

Many females use a date rape drug on the market called “Beer”. The drug is found in liquid form and is available anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, from taps and in large “kegs”. ‘Beer’ is used by female sexual predators at parties and bars to persuade their male victims to go home and have sex with them.

A woman needs only to get a guy to consume a few units of ‘Beer’ and then simply ask him home for no strings attached sex. Men are rendered helpless against this approach.

After several Beers, men

2008/ Crash

The latest investment strategy:

If you had purchased $1,000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $49 left.

With Fannie Mae, you would have $2.50 left of the original $1,000 investment.

With AIG, you would have less than $15 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drunk all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

It’s called the 401-Keg plan.

10c Beers

Four old retired guys are walking down a street in Ft Myers, Florida.

They turned a corner and see a sign that says, ‘ Old Timers Bar – all drinks 10 cents.’

They look at each other, then go in, thinking this is too good to be true.

The old bartender says in a voice that carries across the room, ‘Come

on in and let me pour one for you! What’ll it be, Gentlemen?’

There seemed to be a fully-stocked bar, so each of the men ask for a martini.

In short order, the bartender serves up four iced martinis… Shaken, not stirred, and says, ‘That’ll be 10 cents each, please.’

The four men stare at the bartender for a

THE LADS' PRAYER:

Our beer, Which art in barrels, Hallowed be thy drink Thy will be drunk, I will be drunk, At home as it is in the local Forgive us this day our daily spillage, As we forgive those spillest against us. And lead us not into the practice of poncey wine tasting, and deliver us from alco-pops, For mine is the bitter, the ale and the lager, Forever and ever; BARMEN

Three Little Pigs

Three Little Pigs went out to dinner one night. The waiter came and took their drink order.

“I would like a Sprite,” said the first little piggy.

“I would like a Coke,” said the second little piggy.

“I want beer, lots and lots of beer,” said the third little piggy.

The drinks were brought out and the waiter took their orders for dinner.

“I want a nice big steak,” said the first piggy.

“I would like the salad plate,” said the second piggy.

“I want beer, lots and lots of beer,” said the third little piggy.

The meals were brought out and a while later the waiter approached the table and asked if the piggies would like any dessert.

“I
