Moderate Drinking May Help Men's Hearts

Posted April 3, 2012

TURNING to drink can help men live longer after a first heart attack, a study has shown.

Two alcoholic drinks a day over a long period gave attack survivors a 42 per cent lower risk of dying from heart disease than non-drinkers, researchers found.

Their risk of death from any cause was reduced by 14 percent.

But the benefits were seen only with "moderate" drinking. Higher consumption wiped out the survival gains and increased the chances of dying so they matched those of non-drinkers.

The findings are broadly in line with evidence that controlled drinking levels can protect the heart and arteries.
