REGULAR drinking is good for you--aids the digestion as well as raising the spirits. This is commonplace folk wisdom in Britain, France, Poland, Japan, MNicaragua, Antigua, and Australia--indeed, in most places in the world except America. So it was pleasing to see the American Council on Science and Health this month finally endorse moderate drinking by publishing a pamphlet, by R. Curtis Ellison of the Boston University School of Medicine, that says: "The scientific evidence is now clear. alcohol use can extend life"
