For those that are avid or non drinkers, recent studies have suggested that beer and wine might not be bad after all. In a recent study published by the HealthDay News they provided evidence that a glass of beer or wine a day can help lower your chances of heart disease. However, this does not mean that drinking an excess amount of either will be good for your heart. By drinking an excess amount of beer or wine you are more likely to experience a greater risk for heart disease. What researchers found that moderate drinkers had a 32 percent lower risk of heart attack, 56 percent lower risk of sudden heart death, 24 percent lower risk of heart failure, and 12 percent decreased risk of ischemic stroke. However, as mentioned before an excess amount can increase your chances of heart disease. This may not be the safest way to lower chances of heart disease, but if you are someone who wants to limit the amount that they drink then try to limit to one beer per day.
