Sensational opening: scientists have found unexpected advantage of alcohol


Alcohol intake in moderate quantities reduces risk of cardiovascular diseases. About it researchers of University College London and Cambridge university claim.

Scientists have studied the data obtained during experiences in which 35 132 persons have in total taken part. Level of the consumption of alcoholic drinks has been estimated, at the same time 168 grams of ethanol a week for men and 112 grams of ethanol a week for women were considered as a moderate dose. During the entire period of observations 1718 cases (4,9 percent from all number of examinees) the coronary heart trouble (CHT) have been registered, and 325 people have died.

Has turned out that most often those who have ceased to drink (incidence in group - 6,1 percent) suffered from cardiovascular diseases. Those who took alcohol in moderate quantities (incidence - 3,8 percent, mortality - 0,6 percent) have to a lesser extent suffered.

However scientists note that the considerable difference was observed only at women 55 years are more senior. Besides, increase in probability of a disease can speak changes in a way of life which involve additional risks.
