Study: Frequency of alcohol use is what cuts heart risks

Hmmm … “Almost regardless of other factors associated with drinking – frequency of use seemed to be what reduced the subsequent risk of a heart attack,” says Dr. Kenneth Mukamal of Harvard University Medical School. According to the article: “Those who drank at least three days a week had about a third fewer heart attacks than did non-drinkers. And it made almost no difference whether the drinking consisted of a half-drink or four. Those who imbibed only once or twice a week had only a 16 percent lower risk of a heart attack.”

I wonder Kristen would agree this justifies my Scotch whiskey line item on our grocery budget?
