Is there such a thing as healthy “moderate” drinking and, if so, what are the definitional parameters?
What about differences in gender?
What about differences in ethnicity?
Does genetics play a role?
Other Influencing Factors
Do physical exercise routines play a significant role in healthy living for drinkers?
To what extent does stress impact drinkers?
Many people get by on less sleep than they should, but does this really result in additional negative consequences for drinkers?
Does consuming any level of alcohol add to the load of environmental toxins by which all of us are affected every day?
Is the combined impact of all these factors further influenced by age?
The author is a firm believer in the principle that each individual must take control of her or his life. As a drinker of alcoholic beverages for many years, the author has personally tested his theory that lifestyle modifications can influence one’s health, no matter whether a person is a moderate or immoderate drinker. The final chapter of the book lays out the author’s personal health regimen, as well as his most recent medical results.
This book is a must read for anyone interested in achieving optimal health benefits while continuing to drink alcoholic beverages.
It gives me great pleasure to write the foreword to Gerald D. Facciani’s The Drinkers Guide to Healthy Living. First, in order to be totally transparent, I am a very good friend of Mr. Facciani, and secondly, if you don’t know my name, just Google it. I have been the owner, publisher and leading writer for a journal called Robert M. Parker Jr.’s The Wine Advocate since it was founded in 1978, so it should be clear that I’m an advocate for alcohol.
At the same time, I believe in responsible consumption and a relatively holistic view of one’s health. This would include the many different factors to be considered regarding diet, one’s personal philosophy of living, and of course, weaving these factors with the consumption of alcohol.
