More information on the benefits of alcohol

A new article in the British Medical Journal again indicates that moderate alcohol consumtion may have benefits in preventing heart disease. Women and men appear to be impacted differently: one drink a week for women suffices to produce maximum protection (36% risk reduction), whereas for men, a drink a day provides a 40% risk reduction. Reminder - all the authors stress that alcohol consumption beyond the limits in their studies can lead to severe detrimental health effects!
