Woohoo!

April 22, 2009

A new Yale study shows wine drinkers suffering from Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma are much less likely to die or relapse than their teetotaller counterparts.

Stories like that are quite welcome. Wine shields against cancer.

It seems like a dog’s age since I wrote ‘Usually Fatal‘ for Russell ‘Public Address‘ Brown, and that would be because it is. Three years.

I’m getting old. Must be the wine.

PS – Yale University was founded by a grant from the Yale family who are from North Wales. Elihu is buried in St Giles church in Wrexham where I grew up, although I have no memory of St Giles church at all. Shame really.

    They named the university after Yale in the hope that he would follow up his original donation (books mainly) with more – but he never did.
