Palmetto State-based scientists have (re)discovered exciting diet news:
"Middle-aged non-drinkers can quickly reduce their risk of heart disease by introducing a daily tipple to their diet."
Take that, Carrie Nation!
Interestingly, the best "bang for the buck" (as it were) came from imbibing only wine, as opposed to beer or hard liquor. The study also found that drinkers' HDL (the "good" cholesterol) also improved when former tea-totalers went off the wagon (no mention of a fast-food diet, though).
Well, off to lower my heart disease risk. Cheers!
