Having A Drink A Day Can Prevent Heart Attacks

Heart health benefits from moderate alcohol consumption



Recent research on the benefits of moderate alcohol consumption for keeping a healthy heart was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.


According to the study, which looked at data from more than 50,000 people, drinking one drink per day for women and one to two drinks per day for males can reduce stress activity in the brain over the long term, which lowers the risk of heart disease.


While the study highlights the positive impact of light to moderate alcohol consumption on cardiovascular health, it also emphasizes the dangers associated with excessive drinking, including heightened cancer risks and reduced brain activity. The researchers are now striving to identify alternative approaches that can replicate alcohol’s protective effects without the detrimental consequences.
