A large international study has called into question previous research that suggests light to moderate drinking may be good for the heart. The new study finds that people who drink only light to moderate portions of alcohol can improve their heart health, reduce their body mass index (BMI), and bring down their blood pressure by reducing their alcohol consumption. Study co-author Dr. Michael Holmes adds, "Contrary to what earlier reports have shown, it now appears that any exposure to alcohol has a negative impact upon heart health."
