Doctors are allowed to consume alcohol in moderation.
A daily glass of wine or 0.5 liters of beer can reduce the risk of early death from all causes.
A new study shows that the consumption of alcohol in moderation – less than 14 drinks per week for men and seven for women – may actually have protective health effects, especially for heart disease.
At that time, as alcohol abuse has long been associated with many serious health problems, including liver failure, heart disease, and cancer of the oral cavity, a new article suggests that alcohol in moderation can be beneficial.
Experts said that for most older people the overall benefits of light alcohol consumption “clearly outweigh” the potential risk of developing cancer.
Thus, moderate alcohol consumption was associated with a 13 percent and 25-percent reduced risk of mortality from all causes and from 21 percent and 34 percent reduction in the risk of mortality from cardiovascular disease, respectively, in men and in women.
According to lead study author Dr. Bo XI, from the school of public zdravoohranenia in China, experiments show that light and moderate drinking may have some protective effects from cardiovascular disease, while heavy alcohol consumption can lead to death.
“A delicate balance exists between beneficial and harmful consequences of alcohol consumption, which needs to be examined by consumers and patients,” she says.
In turn, the representative of the British Foundation Heart Foundation said: “a Large dose of alcohol than is recommended can have a detrimental effect on your heart and overall health. If you drink alcohol, it is important to follow the guidelines. Men and women should not drink more than 14 units of alcohol each week. You should have a few days without alcohol each week.”
