American Heart Association Meeting Report

American Heart AssociationPhoenix, AZ – Drinking alcohol is associated with an immediate higher risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.

The study, a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of previous research, will also be published simultaneously in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

There may be an immediate risk of having a stroke or heart attack after drinking any alcohol, but moderate intake produces some protective health benefits within 24 hours. However, heavy drinking may increase both short- and long-term heart and stroke risks. (American Heart Association)
