[b]1. Pink Grapefruit Juice for Smoother Skin[/b]

Pink grapefruit gets its pink-red hue from lycopene, a carotenoid that'll keep your skin smooth.

[b]2. Alcohol to Ward Off Alzheimer's Disease[/b]

Drinking alcohol--moderately, which is one glass a day for women and two daily for men--may ward off dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

[b]3. Cocoa for a Healthier Heart[/b]

Rich in flavanols that help preserve the healthy function of blood vessels.

[b]4. Beet Juice to Beat Dementia[/b]

Beets are rich in naturally occurring nitrates, which--unlike unhealthy artificial nitrates found in processed meat--may be beneficial.

[b]5. Green Tea to Quell Inflammation[/b]

Green tea is full of potent antioxidants that help quell inflammation. (Chronic inflammation plays a significant role--as either a cause or effect--in many diseases, including type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases and the three top killers in the United States: heart disease, cancer and stroke.)

[b]6. Soymilk for Firm Skin and Fewer Wrinkles[/b]

The isoflavones in soymilk may help to preserve skin-firming collagen.

[b]7. Milk to Build Muscle Mass and Strength[/b]

The amino acids in protein are the building blocks of muscle--and one amino acid, called leucine, is particularly good at turning on your body's muscle-building machinery.

8. Carrot Juice for Memory

Carrots contain luteolin, a flavonoid believed to reduce inflammation that can lead to cognitive decline.

[b]9. Coffee to Protect Against Skin Cancer[/b]

Drinking a single cup of coffee daily may lower your risk of developing skin cancer.

[b]10. Water for Better Breath[/b]

Water keeps your throat and lips moist and prevents your mouth from feeling dry. Dry mouth can cause bad breath and/or an unpleasant taste.

[b]11. Orange Juice for Eye Health[/b]

Studies show that people with low levels of antioxidants are more likely to develop age-related macular degeneration (AMD) than those with higher levels. (AMD is the leading cause of blindness in people over age 60.) Vitamin C--which is abundant in orange juice--is one antioxidant that seems to be especially protective against the disease.

[/quote]

These ingredients can't be mixed to create one super cocktail because 1) some of them conflict with each other like milk and alcohol, for example; 2) mixing just any two of them can potentially eliminate the advantageous properties of both substances.

Anyways, I give the author of list a D+.

Alcohol is an anti-aging drink: women look younger and more attractive the more wasted you get. I am sure it also works in the reverse for women.

I don't think drinking alcohol daily can save you from any disease, it will become a habbit that is injerious to our health.

I have never became addicted to alcohol or caffeine, or much of anything.

Don't be so ridiculous. I drink when I feel like it - it is far from habitual or addictive and has never caused me any concern.

This whole "If you drink you will become a drunk" hogswash is so bloody annoying!

This is based on science research, not pulled out of thin air.
