Keep Those Stress Hormones Down! A Drink or Two a Day is "A-OK"

Posted by Dr. Paul Grussenmeyer on

Remember, "A drink or two a day is A-OK".  Am I crazy?  No.  It's a trade-off.  Which is worse?  Having your adrenal glands chronically release cortisone (cortisol) into your system, causing all kinds of illnesses, including cancer, OR, having up to one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men to help mellow you out and keep those stress hormones in check.
