The Brits have concluded that no level of alcohol consumption is really safe. So they now recommend less drinking. If it's not safe, why not recommend not drinking? People will still do what they want.

Im not sure what would cause a revolution in the UK quicker, removing all food or removing alcohol. I think I'll have to poll my Brit friends next week and see.

That's kind of my point, Most people aren't particularly motivated by pure health discussions, but more by balancing their enjoyment with their health. 

 

Look at this report of an insurance incentive weight loss program.

It just doesn't impact people even with the positive incentive.

Sorry for all the thread hijacking. I expect FBI/TSA officials to be waiting for me at the airport when we land.
