Yep! That’s what the Times says anyway! And who are we to argue with such a respected publication? The story has all sorts of good quotes. Such as: “Drinking is associated with a 10.1 percentage point increase in the probability of exercising vigorously.” That’s what it says! Honest! And: “An extra episode of binge drinking increases the number of minutes of total and vigorous physical activity per week for both women and men.” So: Get those (tight, nicely shaped) bottoms up!
