If one zooms down to the statistics in Malaysia, the risk from smoking is even higher at a factor of 4 compared to taking alcohol. The only known risk of alcoholism in Malaysia has been notable when there are deaths from drunken driving. Data source: Our World In Data
I caught Sivakarthikeyan‘s latest Tamil movie, Doctor at Netflix recently and let me tell you upfront – it is probably one of the worst movies starred and produced by him. But surprisingly the reviews of the movie have been good so one has to wonder what the reviewers were drinking when they reviewed this movie. It was also reported to be one of the highest-grossing movies for 2021. Or did I miss something? Image source: IMDB
It has come to a point where if you have an alcohol drinker, a cigarette smoker and a person who doesn’t drink or smokes, the last person to be infected would be the alcohol drinker considering how alcohol kills viruses.

News snippet – Still remember this so-called Professor Kamarul Zaman who in 2018 was one of three panellists and was criticising and stressing why Dr M should not be a Prime Minister.
It was reported that the Professor wetted himself (which the Professor strongly denies) when Dr M gatecrashed the Shah Alam event and posted on Twitter “I am here guys. Say it to my face.” Well, he is back with wild allegations of veiled religious conversion by using charity. Image source: Malaysiakini.
