UC-Davis Study: A Beer a Day Cuts Heart Attack and Stroke Rate by 40 Percent

A study by scientists at the University of California-Davis indicates that men or women who have a glass of beer a day can cut their risk of heart attack and stroke by up to 40 percent.

The researchers say a glass of beer raises HDL, which is the good type of cholesterol, while reducing the risk of blood clots forming in a heart artery.

The study points out that moderate consumption is the key to enjoying the healthful benefits of beer and other forms of alcohol.
