Alcohol In Moderation May Benefit Mental Health.

HealthDay (8/31, Reinberg) reported that, according to a study published Aug. 30 in the journal BMC Medicine, “alcohol in moderation may benefit mental health.” Researchers arrived at that conclusion after following “more than 5,500 light-to-moderate drinkers for up to seven years,” none of whom had drinking problems or depression at the start of the study. After adjusting for confounding factors, researchers found that “participants who drank two to seven glasses a week were the least likely to suffer from depression,” compared to people who did not drink at all.
