Apples : Oranges

More from Roto-Reuters:
Heavy drinking tied to heart rhythm problem in men

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Men who consume 35 or more alcoholic drinks per week are 45 percent more likely to experience atrial fibrillation, a heart rhythm problem, than their peers who consume less than one drink per week, new research shows.
Let's compare '35 or more' with 'less than one'. Seems like a wide gap to me. You could come up with about any statistic with proportions like that.

What happened to '10 or more, ' 2 or more', or even '1 or more'? How many tests did they run for how many years before they found someone who had heart arrhythmias to where they could validate some statistic?

Must have cost them a fortune in cocktails.

lol at last line. Do they want to study any women? I could live with being paid to drink 35 beers a week. I'll have to exercise more, though... I'm too young for a beer gut!
