Alcohol - How much is safe?

A new scientific study concludes there is no safe level of drinking alcohol.

So, all that talk about mild consumption being good for the heart, especially red wine, is now “not conclusively proven”. Somewhere in my studies I had read that 1.5 drinks (about 45 ml) was considered safe, but I can’t recall where.

My wife attended a conference yesterday with an expert on marijuana use from Yale with much the same conclusion, with differentiations between pharmaceutical marijuana (brand name here is Marinol) and medical marijuana. Studies appear to show, however, that it does at least demonstrate usefulness in treating pain and nausea.

I'm a wine and beer gal.

Personally, I think there's 2 sides to the coin and these guys are just playing it safe.
