A number of studies have shown that light or moderate alcohol intake is associated with a reduced incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) compared with non-drinkers.
There is controversy as to whether this is due to a specific protective effect of alcohol or whether the increased risk of CHD in non-drinkers is due to selective migration of high-risk subjects from drinking into non-drinking categories.
A prospective study of men aged 40-59 years drawn at random from one general practice in each of 24 British towns, and followed for cardiovascular morbidity and all-cause mortality over a 9.5-year period.
