Drinking almost a pint ( 2 cups) every day of the week may help stave off the deathly effects of cardiovascular disease (CVD), a new study reveals.
Experts at University College London say drinking up to 105 grams of alcohol per week is linked with a decreased risk of heart attack, stroke, angina or death among those with CVD.
This is equivalent to one bottle of wine.
However, the study authors were quick to stress that they’re not advising people with CVD conditions to start boozing if they don’t already.
‘Our findings suggest that people with CVD may not need to stop drinking in order to prevent additional heart attacks, strokes or angina, but that they may wish to consider lowering their weekly alcohol intake,’ said study author Chengyi Ding.
‘As alcohol consumption is associated with an increased risk of developing other illnesses, those with CVD who do not drink should not be encouraged to take up drinking.’
The authors estimated the risk of heart attack, stroke, angina and death for 48,423 adults with CVD, using data obtained from the UK Biobank, the Health Survey for England, the Scottish Health Survey and from 12 previous studies.
Participants reported their average alcohol consumption. Data on subsequent heart attacks, strokes, angina or death, over a period of up to 20 years, was obtained from health, hospital admission and death registry records.
Among people with CVD, those who drank up to 15 grams of alcohol per day – equivalent to less than two UK units – had a lower risk of recurrent heart attack, stroke, angina or death, compared to those who did not drink alcohol.
One unit is equal to half a pint of medium-strength beer or half a standard glass of wine.
And those who drank more than 62 grams of alcohol per day – equivalent to less than eight UK units – did not have an increased risk of recurrent heart attack, stroke, angina or death, compared to those who did not drink alcohol.
The authors linked moderate alcohol intake – defined as no more than one alcoholic drink for women and two for men per day – with a 20 per cent lower risk of dying from CVD, in a sample of more than 50,000 people
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels.
It’s usually associated with a build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries (atherosclerosis) and an increased risk of blood clots.
It can also be associated with damage to arteries in organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys and eyes.
CVD is one of the main causes of death and disability in the UK, but it can often largely be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.
All heart diseases are cardiovascular diseases, but not all cardiovascular diseases are heart disease.July 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm #1461882σиєαℓ32Member
