A drink a day? Many people may rejoice in knowing that consuming alcohol may lower your risk of heart disease. However, it is with moderation that alcohol consumption is recommended for heart disease prevention.
Many experts now believe that consuming just one glass of alcohol a day such as beer or wine can lower your risk of a heart attack. This is just one glass. A glass is defined as 12 ounces of beer or four ounces of wine.
It is important to not drink any more than this, because drinking too much alcohol can cause problems with the liver and can actually increase your risk of heart attack or stroke.
