Experts from the University of Tasmania said that moderate drinking is not harmful to the heart. Moreover, alcohol in small amounts strengthens the cardiovascular system.
The study involved 2,200 people. It turned out that a dose of 10-20 grams of ethanol a day does not prevent the body to function properly. On the contrary, it stimulates metabolism. It turns out that a glass of wine or a small glass of brandy before dinner is really useful for a healthy person.
The conclusions and their assumptions, the researchers published at the scientific conference of the American heart Association.
Note, according to statistics, not drinkers have more problems with high cholesterol and more likely to be obese.
