    really brain cell death which occurse for any amount of alchol is apostive thing is it...

    like to see the medical science and research you have done which will back this up as fact... and that it's postively beneficially to your health.

    links and sources please.

    or again are you talking out of your hat...

    Will it still be legal to drink alcohol while cycling?

    Yes. There is no legal limit and you cannot be breathalised. It's a judgement call at the discretion of the police officer who can stop you if she thinks you are too drunk to cycle.

    But watch you're not drinking in a no alcohol zone.

    you wanna learn to read i quoted in full and bolded the part where someone was actually saying alcohol isharmless and also our own dear hard the editor thinks it's perfectly harmless (not that ed is in any way biased in support of his own vices over those of others one might add, something we all do to some extent.)

    alchol destroies brain cells with any amount drunk it is a diluted posion. period. this can never be considered a good thing...

    I've hear this but read recently that its not true. Do you know that it is true - or is it just something everyone think they know?

    the sentence "alcohol destroys brain cells with any amount drunk" is not true.

    Cut yourself a nice big slice of humble pie, Garf. Oh, and will you fucking quit shoving in your pathetic little personal digs? Thanks.

    Etc etc etc zzzzzzzz

    the editor has made a definitive statement and shold back it up as he beleives it's 'positively beneficially' and entirely harmless.

    any one adovating that should really be able to substatiate their claims... definuitively, else they cannot makes such claims... and should retract them...

    it's called rigours of debate...

    i dunno have you heard of them...

    Sigh. Why are you recycling these old wives' tales?

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    intresting not one of those actually proves your point though does it... or indeed disproves mine links pleas eto alcohol is entirely harmless ....

    and as you've quoted it you can of course read, i have no doubt...

    when you are ready.

    and saying someone is talking out of their hat isn't a personal dig unless you have some kind of elephantine ego which cannot stand being questioned on the vaildity of what they say in any matter. Which, i wasn't previously aware you had.

    so can we stick to what's being said please.

    back up your claim that alchol is entirely harmless the part which you have failed to provide any evidence for or retract as you were talking out of your hat... it's a simple enough proceedure.
     
  23. GarfieldLeChat

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    any chance of some non biased soruces which aren't from the alchol industry?

    could you find where anyone has said that alcohol is entirely harmless? i can't find anyone who's said that.

    Is the Queensland Brain Institute director Professor Perry Bartlett in Australia paid for by the alcohol industry then?
    And what about this research:
    Seeing as you're insisting that some of the world's top neuroscientists are wrong, please provide some credible sources to back up your emphatic assertion that: "alchol destroies brain cells with any amount drunk it is a diluted posion. period."

    Thanks.

    my comment which the editor quoted and responded with the folllowing....

    ergo the editor is saying drinking is entirely harmless...

    (for moderate drinkers. not all drinkers)
     
  27. editor

    editor hiraethified

    I certainly haven't made that claim, so I'll be looking forward to Garf's response on this one.

    *edit: LOL at Garf's desperate, highly selective quoting of my words!
     
  28. GarfieldLeChat

    GarfieldLeChat fucking awesome but wrong

    oh i can trade research all day with you but the fact remains that you cannot prove it anymore than i can and i'd like to see some verifiable ualifations for your 'neurosicentitists' other than on your own links...

    come on don't Jazzz this, put up verifable cross refferenceable sources...
     
  29. rutabowa

    ok so that's saying the consumption of alcohol in moderation is entirely harmless? ok well i would modify that to almost entirely harmless but i pretty much agree, that is the standard medical view isn't it?
