Rectum Cancer: Choose the wine not the beer
According to a Danish study, the regular consumption of alchol increases the risk of rectal cancer. But in a less marked way if wine constitutes a third or more of the consumed alcohol. Therefore :better to drink more wine than beer.

The study was carried out by a team from the Center of Alcohol Research in Copenhagen. Other factors of risk like the nicotinism, ponderal excess and sedentariness, were also taken into account. The drinkers who absorbed more than 41 glasses per week are proven to present a risk of rectal cancer twice as high than the total abstainers. In addition, the type of consumed alcohol appears to play a considerable role: with 14 glasses of beers and spirits per week but without wine, the risk was multiplied by 3,5 compared with the total abstainers. On the other hand for those which drank the same quantity of alcohol but with at least 30% wine, the risk was “only” multiplied by 1,8.

According to the authors', wine drinkers have a higher level of study and practice more sport then beers and spirits consumers . An explanation which appears a little short….

Home distilling in a prison cell.

The supervisors of the prison in Toul (France) discovered that a prisoner originating from Alsace was distilling alcohol inside his cell.

The prisoner used: a copper tube, a plastic container and a simple pan which was heated on an electric plate. Twelve litters of distilled alcohol were manufactured from apples and pears which were collected from the canteen. The distilled alcohol was quoted as "good", even “very good ", from other prisoners and contained 59° or 60°.

16 kilos of fruit and two kilos of sugar were necessary to make 30 centilitres of alcohol. Two flasks of anethol, a concentrate of anise which was used to prepare pastis were also seized. This former hold-up man, who will finish his time in 2005, will have to wait some month more to taste some legal alcohols.

Super-ministre et super-buveur de bière.
Le ministre allemand de l'Economie et du Travail, Wolfgang Clement, est également un buveur de bière hors pair en vidant un demi (25 cl.) de bière allemande en une seconde et demie, lors d'un paris avec des journalistes.
Mais le ministre leur a confié son secret : "Il faut juste repousser sa luette et la bière coule directement dans la gorge. Vous ne profitez pas du goût, mais elle arrive plus vite à destination." BR>A quand le défi relevé par Chirac à la Corona ?

Bientôt la "Stout" version africaine.
Pour plaire à la communauté noire Irlandaise, le brasseur Guinness étudie une version africaine de sa célèbre "stout", à l'image de la Guinness brassée au Nigeria et baptisée "Guinness Foreign Extra Stout", plus alcoolisée que la Guinness européenne. "Les Africains sont persuadés que la Guinness brassée au Nigeria est de meilleure qualité parce que plus forte". Si les tests se révèlent positifs, la nouvelle Guinness (avec un taux d'alcool de sept et huit pour cent, contre 4,3% dans la version irlandaise) pourrait être commercialisée dès l'été.
