A survey states that mortality rates are the highest for those who have never had liquor!

Here's a major revelation for those gawking in surprise...
Plausibly, alcohol proves to be a great social lubricant that greatly enhances sociability! Sociability is essential for humans to maintain physical and mental health. The nondrinkers, on the flip-side, have been shown to demonstrate far greater signs of depression.
