Moderate amounts of alcohol and large amounts of refined carbohydrates resulted in a 30% reduction in the risk of developing Type-2 diabetes in women, the study found.

A similar effect was not found in women who consumed a similar diet but didn't drink. Such women were found to carry a higher risk for diabetes. Of course, this does not mean that women should begin drinking, especially if they are not accustomed to it.
