Scientists of University College London and Cambridge university have found out that people who take alcohol in moderate quantities suffer from cardiovascular diseases less often in comparison with those who never drank. About results of scientific work it is reported in the press release on EurekAlert!. Experts have analysed the data obtained during the researches in which 35 132 persons have in total participated. Level of the consumption of alcoholic drinks has been estimated, at the same time 168 grams of ethanol a week for men and 112 grams of ethanol a week for women were considered as a moderate dose. During the entire period of observations 1718 cases (4,9 percent from all number of examinees) the coronary heart trouble (CHT) have been registered, and 325 people have died. It has turned out that most often those who have ceased to drink (incidence in group — 6,1 percent) suffered from cardiovascular diseases. Those who took alcohol in moderate quantities (incidence — 3,8 percent, mortality — 0,6 percent) have to a lesser extent suffered.
