Loved the conference today in SLO. Dr. Herten’s presentation was captivating. When I posted information about Herten’s findings on my Facebook page, I was not surprised by the protests and finger pointing I received from talking about the risks of alcohol use. Society has a difficult time accepting that something they love to do (binge on alcohol), can be potentially fatal. I’m personally glad that Dr. Herten opened my eyes to the truth…and helped me understand how irresponsible/long term drinking can absolutely cause major health risks, including death. Thank you for your research and bravery! I’m sure not everyone is happy about your findings!
