New Study Out Says Moderate Drinking Can Improve Ones Health?

We’ll drink to that!

“It may be surprising to know that drinking 14 drinks per week in a twice-daily fashion can actually reduce your risk of heart disease, whereas having the same 14 drinks over just two days can promote heart disease,” says John Cullen, associate professor at the University of Rochester Medical Center, who was not involved in this study but is a longtime researcher on the effects of binge drinking on cardiovascular health.

“There’s a fine line; alcohol can either protect or damage your heart,” Cullen says, adding that the “very interesting study” yet again “highlights the importance of the effects of patterns of alcohol consumption on heart disease.”

He also found that occasional binge drinking increases the inflammation of blood vessels — reducing blood flow and potentially damaging the heart.

But daily moderate drinking actually seems to help keep the blood flowing smoothly, he says.
