Moderate alcohol consumption in middle age can lower cardiac risk
The study also identified a subset of new drinkers who consumed only wine. When comparing non-drinkers to wine-only drinkers, drinkers of other types of alcohol, and heavy drinkers, the wine-only drinkers had the most significant reduction in cardiovascular events. Drinkers of other types of alcohol also had an advantage over non-drinkers, but the difference did not reach statistical significance.

I’ve been seeing more and more studies showing the health benefits of limited alcohol intake, especially red wine. While at the health food store the other day I noticed several supplements that were supposed to be the good stuff from red wine without the alcohol. And priced higher than several bottles of wine. πŸ™„
