I recently was reading this inforgrafics about excessive alcohol use. It is written:
No one should begin drinking or drink more frequently based on potential health benefits
I am surprised. Is there any potential health benefits of drinking alcohol?
To check this information, I made a little research and found this article of the Medical Daily: 7 Health Benefits Of Drinking Alcohol. Apparently, a moderate alcohol consumption (no more than 2 drinks a day for a men) can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, lengthen the life, decrease the chances of demantia and diabetes, ...
But, for all of these facts, only one study is provided. So, I want to know if it is a well established fact that alcohol can have positive effects on health. And, if so, what is the corresponding dose to get these benefits?
