Amstel Light Please

With the Holiday Season approaching we are likely to deck the halls and open our homes to guests and relatives.  Serving beer and wine at these traditional functions that include both adults and kids alike may seem common.  But what example are we setting by making noses red by serving alcohol ?  A new study shows that when measuring the harm caused to ourselves and to others, alcohol, NOT heroine or crack, is more dangerous.  So what does this study mean ?  It may mean that while we spend time fretting over the ever widening use of hard drugs by our kids, that we might want to take a look at the potential danger right under our nose.  This does not mean that you should not serve an Amstel Light to your neighbor at a holiday party.  It might mean that we should stop looking for the sharks in the water, like crack and heroine, and start taking safety measures as simple as wearing a seat belt, by teaching our kids the dangers and responsibilities of alcohol.
