A new paper states that the risk of having a health problem from 1 drink a day is ½% and from 5 drinks a day it rises to 37%. Previous studies showed a beneficial effect of a small amount of alcohol on the heart, but if you look at the benefits and risks, you note that the higher risk of cancer, injuries, and infections offsets the beneficial cardiovascular benefits; we used to say that a glass of wine was good for the heart, but you also need the other organs to be alive and functioning well!

Por: Molly Kleinman, Pasante de verano – Bolour Immigration Group El 15 de julio, la Administración Trump reveló una política que terminaría efectivamente con la mayoría del asilo proveniente de la frontera sur. Sin embargo, la regla no solo afectará la migración desde la frontera sur, ya que muchos solicitantes de asilo de Asia y África también pueden ser colocados en campos de refugiados en los llamados “países seguros” cuando salen de sus hogares.
