Introducing Chris Masterjohn Lite

Is alcohol good for you?

It’s clear to me that 1) alcohol is a toxin and 2) it can help with having fun, which is good for you, but in this episode I consider whether some dose of alcohol might actually be fundamentally good for you. I discuss three ways this might work and what the optimal dose might be, as well as sharing a story of how I used alcohol to help clear up a fungal infection.

Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.

  1. Your info is out of date. The idea of improving mortality by consuming 1-2 drinks/d has been debunked. The original retrospective study that purported to demonstrate such was flawed. See The American J of Medicine, 2016:

  2. I have found the little 20 ml Jäger mini meister bottles to be very health promoting. They have the same amount of alcohol as half a beer. It is still considered a medicinal drink in Germany.

    (And it might be in your best interest to keep free transcripts on these pages. Not everyone would click on a video.)

    1. Sure it might, but I still can write on my blog for the readers, and there’s no way to draw on objective line on what to charge and what to offer for free. If I offer everything for free, I go out of business fast. If I offer nothing for free, no one knows who I am. Whether the transcripts should be free or not is just something that has to be tested.

  3. I have a similar take on the issue as you do as far as alcohol is a toxin (intoxication right). Drinking in moderation is fun. A change in consciousness is a way of not being stuck with your same old self all the time. Cannabis can take care of the consciousness shift and it’s not a toxin. But, alcohol is a different high and paring food with wine can be a real gourmet experience. “Drunk” is a word I never use when I drink but 2 glasses of wine will have me feeling good. I confine my drinking to Friday, Saturday and Sunday each and every week. My body is usually full of antioxidants at the time and I always have some food like cheese (fat) before I drink.
