Re: One quiz at a time

This is a wild guess... 2 x Lagavulin 16, a Talisker 10 and an Aberlour 12 ?

It's just a guess to get us started.

Re: Alcohol and health

According to the Office for National Statistics in 2014 there were 245142 male deaths of which 3682 were due to prostate cancer; 3682/245142 is almost exactly 1.5%. We already established that the figure quoted was not a percentage of all male deaths, but of males in the UK. What kind of cancer did...

Re: Alcohol and health

I have known people who died of prostate cancer, including in my own family. Does that rebalance everything?

Am I dying or not? The statistical likelihood of that happening appears not to have changed.

Not at all. I'm watching Jake Chapman speak some of the most intelligent sentences yet heard on BBC TV, while I make a bolognese.

Now do you want to know what happens in the cellar or not?

Re: Alcohol and health

The BBC, in a misleading titled article entitled Michael Mosley: The truth about alcohol , denies that there is a truth. A man drinking three to four units a day increases his risk of developing prostate cancer by 23%. That's the sort of statistic I simply don't believe is true. I can't understand ...

One should not be drinking 1994 Fonseca. But would it be appropriate to have, watchfully, a quality-control sample?
