Alcohol is Poison in any amount. Recent stories on CNN praising alcohol over exercise define sensationalism and irresponsible reporting. The story they tell is that moderate alcohol drinking actual benefits your heart as much as exercise, and that drinking and exercise is the best combination. They say moderate drinking means one drink a day for women and two for men. No amount of alcohol is healthy, this according to the International Sports Science Association.

Alcohol is good for you but the circumstances are a little misleading. Truthfully, it is good for your heart. But if you weigh the benefits of healthy heart to the dangers of kidney and liver disease, it just doesn’t add up.

If you already have symptoms or advanced heart disease, the benefits of moderate alcohol consumption outweigh the possible risks of kidney or liver disease. That’s the fact. Next time someone tells you alcohol is good for your consider the source and where you are. –At a bar most likely.

We’ll will keep you informed of this and other interesting health news.
