The Drinkers Guide To Healthy Living

“I feel sorry for people who don’t drink. When they wake up in the morning that’s as good as they are going to feel all day”. Frank Sinatra quoted in the book.

We live in a time of claim and counter claim. The UK health lobby claim the ruinous effect of alcohol is blighting lives and costing the country a fortune. The most recent broadside cites a 40% rise in deaths from liver disease in the past 12 years.

The Wine and Spirit Trade Association retorts that rates of overall consumption and excessive drinking have been falling for many years. The majority should not be tarnished with the brush of the minority, nor made to pay their dues.

The European wine sector’s “Wine in Moderation” campaign seeks to champion the sensible middle ground.

Meanwhile over in Southern Nevada Gerald Facciani keeps on drinking. And not always so moderately it seems.

This Book Should Come with a Free Promotional Corkscrew!

“I drink between one and one-and-a-half-bottles of wine a day,” says Gerry Facciani, who is both a friend and now an author – of the book above.

Gerry’s self-published book, The Drinkers Guide To Healthy Living, makes the case that one can drink as much wine as you like as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Citing the cardio-protective ability of wine, and resurfacing many of the things we’ve read about resveratrol, anthocyanins, flavinoids and antioxidants in the press… and stringing together hypotheses and test data, Gerry makes a case about the positive, physiological aspects of wine early in the book.
