Was this claim made prior or subsequent to the drinking of the whiskey?
2005-05-08 11:06:07 PM  
Simply awesome.
2005-05-08 11:07:35 PM  
Whiskey has alcohol, alcohol kills/disinfects cells, cancer is cells, so Whiskey kills cancer.

And for religous people

Whiskey is evil, the devil is evil, diseases are god's anger at your sins, so Whiskey is the devil meddling with god's plans.

now that is some fine journalism.
2005-05-08 11:15:24 PM  
OBVIOUS would have been a nice tag. We are talking about Irish scientists.

In other news, anyone else take a particular shine to today's Farkette? Wow, if I lived in Cali, I'd be willing to promptly quit smoking.

2005-05-08 11:59:06 PM  
Submitter's assuming the scientists were Irish just because this is in an Irish news source?

That's funny, I was just reading a month ago that whiskey causes cancer. Apparently something about carbon from the charred barrels involved in the brewing. I was too drunk at the time to remember details, but I'm sure there's info out there somewhere...
2005-05-09 01:40:06 AM  
bs, the proper title of this article is:

"Irish scientists claim whiskey can cure cancer. Still no cure for hangovers"

Shouldn't this have the obvious tag...

/is part Irish so you cant call me a racist whore.

As a retired member of the C.I.A. * I must make you aware that the Irish people were the most intelligent, hardest working people on the planet. Then we figured out how to distill whiskey. Not a one of us has worked since....
