The Whole Truth about Alcohol



THE writer of this book is an uncompromising anti-prohibitionist, and a whole-hearted supporter of St. Paul's dictum with regard to the use of alcohol. He considers that alcohol has been greatly maligned, that many of the vicious attacks upon its use have no basis oif real evidence, of reason, or of common sense, and that its influence for evil and as a deteriorator of the human race has been, at least, greatly exaggerated. He discusses seriatim the many statements that have been advanced regarding the deleterious action of alcohol, even in the most moderate doses, and the better state of total abstinence, and he adduces many arguments and some facts contravening these.
