Like a research project that "proved" that artificial sweeteners caused cancer - In order to get the desired effect they fed the stuff to rats in amounts equivalent to a human drinking 800 cans of diet cola A DAY!!!!!

It's a LOT of what you fancy that does the damage.
If we decided to act on all the food/health research that's thrown at us we'd either die of starvation or we'd go mad trying to decide whether to eat XXX because it's good for us or eschew it because it can kill us.
I don't think that the 1 or 2 glasses of red wine that I drink over a week are going to turn me into a raging alcoholic or give me cirrhosis of the liver but it might protect my heart (not why I drink it, of course
) but if my genetic make-up predisposes me to heart disease I could drop dead tomorrow. You pays your money and you takes your chance.
