Vodka Hastening Death in Russian Men

One in four Russian men dies before the age of 55, compared to just one in 10 in the US and seven in 100 in the UK, and researchers say vodka is largely to blame for the extremely high premature death rate in Russian males. Men who reported smoking and drinking three or more half-liter bottles of vodka a week were found in a recent study to have a much greater risk of premature death than those who smoked but consumed less than one bottle of vodka a week.

We all seek answers to help find our way in life. In our need for meaning, some people turn to drugs, others to alcohol, still more to God and still a few more to science. No one leaves this world alive but those who resort to simulants pay the greatest price. Maybe.

No drugs. The life is more beautiful without it. Enjoy it.
