Beer In Moderation Lowers Women's Risk Of Heart Attack

There is hasn’t been any doubts and it never will be, drinking beer in moderation is always good for health. Scientist continue to prove it through various researches done across years and on different set of people. .

A recent study conducted by researchers from the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg has found that women who drink beer in moderation are at a 30 percent lower risk for a heart attack compared to women who drink beer heavily and women who don’t drink beer at all.

Hange and her colleagues gathered data from 1,500 women who were asked to rate the frequency of their beer, wine, or spirit consumption. Frequency ranged from “daily” to “nothing in the past in the past 10 years,” and each woman was asked about various physical symptoms they may have been experiencing, including medical conditions. Researchers conducted 32 years of follow-up as part of an ongoing study by Gothenburg that started back in the late 1960s. Women were between the ages of 70 and 92 by the end of the study.

Between 1968 and 2000, 185 women from the study suffered a heart attack, 162 suffered a stroke, 160 developed diabetes, and 345 developed cancer. Women who reported high consumption of spirits (more than once or twice per month) were almost 50 percent more likely to die of cancer compared to women who consumed less alcohol. Women who reported moderate consumption of beer (once or twice per week to once or twice per month) had a 30 percent lower risk for suffering a heart attack compared to women who drank beer several times per week or didn’t drink beet at all.
