  • Everyone has their opinion. Alcohol like anything else, has a different effect on people. Some drink a beer and are sloshed. Some "functional drunks" never seem drunk. My younger of two brothers is very light weight -- I drink him under the table. Not saying drinking is good, but you can't lump everyone into a statistic. People that don't drink (i.e. my mother never drank) have heart disease. Others (i.e. my Polish grandfather) drink alcohol like water and have no heart disease. To each his own.
  • My podiatrist says even moderate alcohol can increase early neuropathy in some people.
  • Empty calories. Find other ways to make positive changes in your health.
  • in moderation olny
  • With alcohol, like everything else, some good points, some bad points
  • Alcohol is a toxin to the body! It is absorbed and stored as FAT!
  • How many people here have telekenetic powers? Raise my hand.

    The truth about alcohol and heart health
    is drinking actually good for you?
    No ,No it is not I see that this article is out dated The 2015-16 studies found with proper testing and studies alcohol offers no health benefits that is why doctors do not recommend drinking alcohol for heart health rather suggest a healthy diet and exercise I enjoy a drink once in awhile but not because I think it is going to help my heart
  • In spite of this article, your body still metabolizes ALCOHOL as if it were a POISON (that's because in fact it IS). I think that's as crazy as still giving MERCURY as a cure for syphilis.
    Sorry I still limit my alcohol intake. Not to mention its empty calories. I would have thought that would have had no place in this website.
  • I too am troubled by this article. Prefer something else.
  • Like some of the other commenters, I have a family background with a lot of alcholism in it, and even a sibling who was killed by a drunk driver. As a result, I made a decision with my hubby not to drink or take that risk that seems so in my family genes. An article like this is harder for me to read objectively, even tho I have the higher cholesterol issues, and my husband's bp is borderline. Even now, I have a grown son who is over the edge in drinking.
  • Binge drinking led to my high blood pressure and led totally to my weight gain. It's not that I didn't expect it, but they definitely don't tell you about the risk of heart problems associated with alcohol.

    I don't like the taste of wine so I will stick to eating grapes and drinking grape juice. I am really glad that I don't like wine because I would have become addicted and that would not have been good. Fear of becoming an alcoholic is why I don't drink any liquor. I like some alcohols like rum,gin and grain alcohol and could see myself becoming an alcoholic very easily had I not chose to stop drinking totally.
