Moderate Alcohol Consumption Reduces Risk of Cardiovascular Death

Moderate Alcohol Consumption Reduces Risk of Cardiovascular DeathA number of studies have been carried out, which have shown link between alcohol consumption and its effect on breast cancer survival.  It is now that a study has been carried out, which has found that no such link exists.

The recent study has concluded that women who moderately drink are at reduced risk of suffering from cardiovascular death.  Lead researcher Polly Newcomb, from Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, said that the study will act as a great stress reliever for women diagnosed with breast cancer that alcohol does not affect survival.

In addition, it has also been proved that moderate alcohol consumption is beneficial as it reduces the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.  In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers carried out research on 23,000 women, who were part of the Collaborative Breast Cancer Study.

The study initiated some 25 years ago with the filling of questionnaires. "Our findings should be reassuring to women who have breast cancer because their past experience consuming alcohol will not impact their survival after diagnosis", said Polly Newcomb.

Newcomb also added that it is important that the study findings should not be considered as a means to have drinks in excess.
