Light to moderate drinking linked to fewer heart problems in male bypass patients

 

American Heart AssociationChicago, IL – Light to moderate alcohol consumption (about two to three drinks daily) among male coronary artery bypass patients was associated with 25 percent fewer subsequent cardiovascular procedures, heart attacks, strokes and death compared to non-drinkers, in a study presented at the American Heart’s Association’s Scientific Sessions 2010.

“The benefit of light amounts of alcohol consumption has been documented in healthy individuals, but our analysis showed a benefit from light alcohol intake in post-coronary bypass patients,” said Umberto Benedetto, M.D., Ph.D. at the University of Rome La Sapienza in Italy. “However, our analysis indicated that alcohol consumption is not advisable in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure.
