My New Year resolution is… I don’t make resolutions
But before you resolve to give up alcohol, consider this:
“The cardiac benefits of low-dose alcohol are evident in study after study. All over the world, moderate drinkers have healthier hearts than teetotalers, with fewer heart attacks from fatty plaque clogging the heart’s arteries and blocking blood flow.
In countries like the United States where heart disease is a major cause of death, this translates into a survival advantage: moderate drinkers live considerably longer on average than nondrinkers.
‘The science supporting the protective role of alcohol is indisputable; no one questions it any more,’ said Dr. Curtis Ellison, a professor of medicine and public health at the Boston University School of Medicine. ‘There have been hundreds of studies, all consistent.'” Cheers! Slainte! Salute!
