dsc02737 - A Cocktail a Day? In a perfect world...Two finals down, one to go. I can’t wait to kick back with a glass of wine. First I was avoiding alcohol because of being sick, and now I’m just trying to stay clear-headed as possible.

Speaking of wine, Self’s Nutrition Data blog recently featured a post that addresses the question of “Will a Cocktail a Day Keep the Doctor Away?”

The answer: Maybe. Just don’t overdo it (1 a day for women, 2 for men), and don’t start drinking “for health reasons” if you currently abstain from alcohol.

The Cleveland Clinic’s Heart Advisor Newsletter, however, warns people about something called “Holiday Heart Syndrome,” which is brought on by too much of a good thing all at once.

It all comes down to moderation, doesn’t it?
