On Even Light Drinking: Studies and the law

There are several places in the world where alcohol consumption is a part of the local culture yet people live a long time. There have been so many scientific studies done with seemingly conflicting results. Ultimately, Baha'is avoid drinking alcohol, not because it's unhealthy, but because that is one of the laws of Baha'u'llah.
Then Anna continues:

Although this does not affect us much at our age, you should also know that Bahá’u’lláh prohibits the drinking of alcohol and, of course, substance abuse. Drinking alcohol is really one of the greatest social ills that exists today in the world. It is one of the most common causes of violence and the ruin of healthy family life. To tell you the truth, I have never understood why people would take something that interferes with their minds and makes them lose their  ability to think clearly. Drinking makes people capable of acting in shameful ways, when we have actually been created noble.
