Drinking modest amounts of alcohol reduces stress and lowers heart attack risk: the study

A new study in the United States claims that moderate alcohol consumption, whether wine, beer or other alcohol, would reduce the risk of having major cardiac episodes. In addition, the risk reduction would be even lower among people who suffer from high stress and anxiety.

The research was conducted by scholars at Massachusetts General Hospital, and appears to shed new light on the so-called benefits of alcoholic substances on the cardiovascular system. 

Ahmed Tawakol, director of the hospital''s imaging department, explains that "Mild consumption of no more than one glass per day for women and two for men decreases anxiety, relaxes the nervous system and affects brain activities."

The positive effects of alcohol intake, therefore, are not to be attributed to induced alterations on blood, blood pressure or cholesterol, but more specifically from the impact of these substances on the brain. The researchers verified this by analyzing with brain MRIs dozens and dozens of people whose habits had been followed and recorded in Mass General Brigham hospital's Biobank'.

Another finding was that people who drank on average less than 14 drinks per week were significantly less likely to have a heart attack or stroke than those who did not drink at all.
