The surprisingly controversial benefits of moderate drinking

I've written a long read for Spectator USA about moderate drinking, the J-Curve and alcohol guidelines.

The benefits of moderate drinking are an inconvenience to those who want to send a clear and simple message to the public (‘don’t drink’) as well as to those who want to introduce restrictive, tobacco-style legislation for alcohol. If alcohol can be part of a healthy lifestyle, it is difficult to demonize. Thus, for the new breed of temperance campaigner, it would be better if there were ‘no safe level’ of alcohol consumption.
Everything you need to know in one place. Have a read.
