Given this article I started thinking about drinking. So I thought I'd ask the ultimate authority on all important issues: TDPF.
What I'm wondering is whether it is better (healthier) to abstain on a daily basis and have too much once a week OR to drink sensibly on a daily basis and still have too much once a week.
Of course drinking too much is bad for you regardless.
But my hypothesis is that having a daily 1-2 drinks keeps your body better prepared for the damage of too much to drink.
Imagine a vegan goes out and has a huge prime rib. He's going to get sick. Now take that same vegan and feed him a burger every 2 days; I bet that prime rib doesn't make him sick.
On the other hand having a daily drink probably increases your tolerance which then allows you to drink much more when you overindulge which then increases the unhealthiness of that situation.
And how much is too much to drink, anyway?
