If you want a drink you’re better off reaching for wine than for spirits or beer, finds a new study. Glasgow University researchers found that people who consumed mostly spirits had a 25 percent increased risk of death, a 31 percent higher chance of having a major cardiovascular event, and had a 48 percent higher chance of developing liver cirrhosis compared to people who mainly drank wine. Those who drank mostly beer or cider had similar risk levels to those who drank mostly spirits. Other finds: drinking with food equated to a 10 percent lower risk of death, while drinking over four days (as opposed to drinking the same amount of booze in just one or two days) lowered the risk of death by nine percent. Study leaders note that the findings are important as they could help health professionals give patients tailored advice when it comes to alcohol consumption.
