Discussing :: The Unsung Benefits of Wine

If health came in a bottle, it would create mayhem at the local market. As people threw elbows and ran over one another with rabid shopping carts, bottles of health would fly off the shelves, secured in the clenched grip of hissing customers. People would push, shove, and use props - such as a crying child or a seeing-eye dog - to get their hands on this product. A bottle of health would be a best seller.

Before you get TOO excited, this article does mention the word "moderate" four times. Moderate drinking, a concept seemingly alien to a large proportion of many New Zealanders, perhaps does have some health benefits. But looking for a positive spin on excessive drinking may be a bit of a long stretch, to say the least.
