    Objectives

    The prevailing view today is that alcohol consumption is unambiguously a social and public health problem.

    This paper presents evidence to balance this view.

    Methods

    Evidence of beneficial effects of alcohol against coronary artery disease is examined, together with cultural reasons for resistance in the United States to the implications of this evidence.

    Results

    Alcohol use reduces the risk of coronary artery disease-the major cause of heart disease, America's leading killer-even for those at risk for such disease.
