One alcoholic drink per day may cut risk of fatal heart disease 20%, study says - Daily Mail

Consuming a moderate amount of alcohol daily can reduce the risk of dying from a major cardiovascular event by up to 20 per cent, scientists reveal.

The researchers have linked moderate alcohol intake – defined as no more than one alcoholic drink for women and two for men per day – with a 20 per cent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease (CVD), in a sample of more than 50,000 people. .

The experts, from Harvard Medical School, think it's likely that moderate alcohol reduces stress signals from the brain. .

Scientists at the institution previously made the link between stress in the brain with an increased risk of CVD events like heart disease and stroke.   .

'The thought is that moderate amounts of alcohol may have effects on the brain that can help you relax, reduce stress levels and, perhaps through these mechanisms, lower the incidence of cardiovascular disease.'  .

Despite their findings, the research team are actually advocating other, healthier ways of alleviating stress on the brain over alcohol consumption.  .

Of the 53,064 participants, 7,905 (15 per cent) experienced a major adverse cardiovascular event – 17 per cent in the low alcohol intake group and 13 per cent in the moderate alcohol intake group.  

People who reported moderate alcohol intake had not only a 20 per cent lower chance of having a major event compared to low alcohol intake, but also lower stress-related brain activity. 

'In the current study, path analyses showed that the link between moderate alcohol intake and lowered cardiovascular event risk is significantly mediated though reductions in amygdalar activity.'  

Future research will focus on determining whether the observed reductions in brain activity are the direct result of moderate alcohol intake, by way of repeated brain scans and more detailed alcohol intake assessments over time.
