A new study has shown that moderate drinkers take fewer sick days than tee-totalers.
Meanwhile, people who drank over the moderate amount were more likely to be absent because of “injury or poisoning.”
It could be because people with existing health problems are more likely to avoid alcohol.
Or it could be because people who drink are seasoned pros at making it to the office with a hangover.
