There are many “ alcohol is good for your health” headlines. In some instances alcohol is seen as a miracle cure that can ward off everything from heart disease to dementia. It’s the secret to a long life, keeps you slim and makes you happier.
In reality the jury’s still out on the supposed health benefits of alcohol, there is evidence to show that drinking more than the daily unit guidelines can lead to all sorts of health problems.
It’s worth remembering that most of the studies behind the headlines focus on a single benefit of alcohol and while alcohol may reduce your risk of one disease, it may increase the risk of another.
