Washington: Alcohol consumption over age 50 lowers mortality risk

Daijiworld Media Network - Washington (SHP)

Washington, Jul 12: Heavy drinking has been discouraged as it causes certain types of cancer, liver and heart diseases and damage to the nervous system including the brain.

Debates by scientists still continue on whether drinking in moderation is harmful or not. Drinking with progressing age is considered to have certain health benefits. Some researchers believe, low level consumption of alcohol will have a protective effect, such as mortality towards cardiovascular disease.

Some studies have suggested that moderate alcohol consumption extends life and protects the heart, while others argued over this claim. Some studies have suggested that low level consumption of wine and beer, but not spirits, protect against cardiovascular disease.

However, many of the researchers have pointed out that the participants of the study lead a healthy lifestyle and adhere to a healthy diet, so it is not wise to ascertain the role of alcohol in the betterment of an individual.
