Benefits of Alcohol Consumption in Moderation

Alcohol intake and its effect on heart health is a long-debated topic. A large study of UK adults published by The BMJ finds that moderate drinking is associated with a lower risk of several, but not all, cardiovascular diseases. Moderate drinking is not universally associated with a lower risk of all cardiovascular conditions. However, it increases the risk of atrial fibrillation, heart attack and congestive heart failure.
