Drink with me to days gone by, To the life that used to be

October 29, 2004

“A team from the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain found each glass of red wine a day reduced the risk of lung cancer by 13% compared to non-drinkers.”

hmmm… interesting na balita. ano ang ibig sabihin nito? na pwede na ulit akong bumalik sa pag sigarillo as long as maging alcoholic ako. what’s next? bagong findings na nagsasabi na makakatanggal ng wrinkles ang pagkamot ng betlog. na gamot pala sa high blood ang pagkain ng chocnut. na nakakataba pala ang pag-inom ng tubig. aray. seriously, the only way to lower the risk of lung cancer is to stop smoking. period. incidentally: ngayon nga pala ang ika-limang buwan ng aking paghinto sa pag yosi. parang ang tagal na pala ano – truly, a life that used to be. a toast then: to past lives and brand new days. salud! cheers!

KAMPAAAAAAAAAAAI!!!

    We make reasons for our passions and truths out of what we want to believe.

    That is no longer your truth mylab. You’re doing fine without it, so wag mo nang balikan.

    paano ba yan, sabi ni doc emer nagpataw na raw ng add’l 20% tax sa mga alak at yosi…


  3. ok lang na taasan ang taxes sa mga cigarettes. in fact dapat gawin nang mga 100 pesos per pack para wala nang bumili.

    bad for your health.


  4. salamat sa paalala mo mylab… and well said. i kind of like the way you put it.

    Hmmm, this is really great news. Imagine, a glass of red wine a day reduces the risk of cancer by 13%. You are the engineer, please do the math. How many bottles para maka 100% tayo. Sinabi ba kung anong pulutan ang dapat kasama?

    You just gave me an idea for a post! Regarding your question:

    “ano ang ibig sabihin nito? na pwede na ulit akong bumalik sa pag sigarillo as long as maging alcoholic ako?”

    Not necessarily. I’ve read the original study in full from the Thorax journal and it used the Odds Ratio (OR) as the statistical way of measuring. I’m always at odds with the OR stat tool in studies like this. While commendable, the sample size could’ve been bigger in order to show a more credible association. The study was actually a contest between red and white wine. The scoreboard showed:

    Red wine OR = 0.87 (per daily glass)

    vs.

    White wine OR = 1.02 (per daily glass)

    There’s your 13 percent less risk of lung cancer from red wine (1 – 0.87 = 0.13)!

    Ewan ko ha, pero sa akin, ang lapit pa din nyan. Tapos case-control ang study with 319 subjects: 132 cases and 187 controls. With so many other factors which can confound development of lung cancer, it would’ve been better IF THEY HAD A LARGER SAMPLE SIZE.

    But the study is commendable in the sense that using the odds ratio, the authors were able to pinpoint the type of wine negatively associated with the development of lung cancer.


  11. RED WINE AND LUNG CANCER

    In the current issue of the Thorax journal, researchers from the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain found that drinking a glass of red wine a day reduced the risk of lung cancer by 13 percent compared to non-drinkers.

    My friend BatJay, …


  12. Hi TinTin.

    Thanks for the Kudos. Five months na akong smoke free. Galing ano?


  13. KAMPAI NINAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG!

    masarap pag tequila at may chaser na beer. napapaganda ang boses ko sa karaoke pag yan ang ininom.


  14. tito rolly,

    masarap na pulutan ay pepper steak, liempo, pusit at tokwa’t baboy. samahan mo dapat ito ng doctor (si Doc Emer?) na titingin sa high blood natin.


  15. thank you justice. oo nga. medyo mas aware na ako ngayon. dati kasi, parang superman ang feeling ko dahil bata ako at malakas. ngayon approaching middle age…. you really stop and think about it.


  16. The Ca T!!!!

    di talaga ako palainom. madali akong malasing eh. pero mukhang ok ang advice mo. ano bang klaseng drink ang iyong suggestion? tequila?


  17. hi doc.

    ang galing naman. salamat sa very informative na reply mo. medyo skeptical nga ako sa report na ito. i’m sure may statistical proof pero napaka misleading nga – drink red wine and you can keep smoking.

    if i were still a smoker, malamang gawin ko itong excuse para ma validate ang habit na ito.
