Drink up, ladies!

So it appears that women "of a certain age" may well benefit from not one, but two shots of the good stuff:

"A glass or two of alcohol a day in middle age could help women enjoy a happy and healthy retirement."

According to a recent, "major" study, having a glass or two of wine (red or white, ladies' choice) with dinner may help to prevent all kinds of health problems, from "cancer to heart disease" (alas: varicose veins aren't on the list).

The usual caveats apply, of course: "the study should not be used to justify ‘anything beyond very modest levels of drinking’."

Party poopers!
