Can moderate alcohol use be good for you? Some doctors have prescribed the use of wine as beneficial. Is it really?

Alcohol comes in four different forms: methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl. The first three forms can cause death even in small doses. The latter, ethyl or ethanol, is found in alcoholic beverages and is distilled from fermenting grain and fruits. Whether it’s wine, beer, or spirits, alcohol is the most accepted and abused drug in the world. It affects millions of people, young and old alike. Eight teens die daily in DUI crashes and more people were killed by alcohol consumption last year than from overdoses of heroin and prescription painkillers combined.

Imagine the world without hospitals, doctors, or medications. We could get pretty close if we were more temperate with our diet, work, and sleep.

Self-indulgence isn't new, but in today's world, self-denial and self-control seem to have lost their meaning and purpose. Our society’s addiction to food is evident everywhere, from the endless hours of cooking shows available and the various “all you can eat competitions,” to the endless demand for restaurants. Nature has been twisted, and we don’t eat to live, rather live to eat.

The Western Australia field youth camp was held at Wave Rock, Perth, Australia from the 14th to the 17th of April. The theme of this camp was “Life Choices” where we delved deeper into understanding the choices and decisions faced by many young people today and how best to navigate this path. This camp was unique in that rather than having formal studies we had discussions out in nature in the open countryside and on top of expansive rocks overlooking the vast plains.
