Beer, Booze and Gout

Beer Doubles Chance of Gout: ``The strongest link was with beer - each daily serving increased the risk by 50 percent. For spirits, the chance of developing gout increased by 15 percent with each extra drink daily. There appeared to be no increased risk among wine drinkers, but there were only 18 men in the study who drank more than two glasses of wine a day.``

OK, I guess I should lay off the beer and get back to the Bourbon.
