Popular Science News | Alcohol More Harmful Than Heroin

Popular Science News – the government’s health advisors are yet again warning us about the danger of excessive drinking defined as the amount we drink and the regularity. This time they are to focus on those who are 60 years old or over. They are saying that this group should drink even less than health warning are suggesting; the equivalent of half a pint of beer per day.

With this in mind, I decided to look at alternatives for those who drink for intoxication rather than for the social side of drinking. The chart below shows these alternatives and the harm they do to society and to the user. Reading the chart it looks like mushrooms are the best alternative for the elderly; not sure about having them with bacon and eggs though.
