前言

1. Do no harm, but take no shit.
2. 科學研究數據扭曲得比想像中還嚴重。眾多證據已被證實為虛構、造假、扭曲、掩蓋,完全不值得信賴。
3. 學習分辨並獲得可信賴的醫藥資訊非常重要。
4. 良好生活、飲食、運動才是健康該優先關注的重點。藥物只是次要,且往往弊大於利。
5. 可惜,在商業運作下,許多人繼續選擇暴飲暴食及不良生活作息,也相信夢幻產品存在。

一天一杯,癌症風險就增加...



Alcohol and Cigarette Use From Ages 23 to 55: Links With Health and Well-Being in the Long-Term National Child Development Study: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs: Vol 78, No 3

Conclusions:

British adults who consistently drank within new lower risk guidelines and abstained from smoking from young adulthood to midlife reported the best overall health and well-being across numerous indicators. However, apparent observed health benefits of stable low-dose alcohol use (vs. abstention) are weakened by the fact that by age 55 almost all alcohol “abstainers” in the National Child Development Study sample were former drinkers, and that respondents who followed infrequent drinking/abstention paths were the mostly likely to report poor health, psychological distress, and low educational qualifications in early adulthood.


Alcohol Consumption and Mortality From Coronary Heart Disease: An Updated Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies: Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs: Vol 78, No 3

Conclusions:

Pooled analysis of all identified studies suggested an association between alcohol use and reduced CHD risk. However, this association was not observed in studies of those age 55 years or younger at baseline, in higher quality studies, or in studies that controlled for heart health. The appearance of cardio-protection among older people may reflect systematic selection biases that accumulate over the life course.

Diet, nutrition, physical activity and breast cancer

簡單說:就算每天一杯,也會增加癌症風險。
