Abstract

Moderate ethanol consumption (1-3 drinks/day on 5-6 days/week) has a Favourable effect on vascular disease-related mortality and morbidity [especially ischaemic heart disease (IHD)]. This cardioprotective effect may be due to significant effects on cardiovascular risk factors such as high density cholesterol (HDL) concentration (HDL protects from IHD) and an inhibition ofplatelet aggregation (increased platelet aggregability predicts coronary events). In contrast, alcoholics and problem drinkers have an excess of IHD-related, and possibly stroke-related, mortality Excessive alcohol intake may raisethe blood pressure. Prolonged alcohol abuse can also result in alcoholic heart muscle disease. Alcohol is the major cause of non-ischaemic cardiomyopathy in Western society. Although there is a widespread belief that red wine protects more than other alcoholic beverages, several studies do not support this interpretation.
