5 Benefits of Alcohol (A fun Read)

Alcohol has always been branded as a malice to the society. Here 5 benefits of "moderate" drinking that some studies have proven.

1. Red wine may help prevent heart disease
Red wine, in moderation, is said to help prevent heart diseases.
Red wine is loaded with antioxidants. These antioxidants help to increase “good” cholesterol levels and protect against artery damage. One key antioxidant found in red wine is resveratrol, and this ingredient prevents damage to blood vessels, lowers bad cholesterol levels, and keeps blood clots from occurring.
Of course, the key phrase in all of this is “in moderation.” Too much drinking can actually be bad for your heart. “Moderation” is considered to be about 2 drinks a day for men and 1 drink a day for women.

2. Beer does a body good?
Beer is a good source of dietary silicon. This helps to keep the bones healthy.
Of course once again the word to keep into mind is moderation. So, pick a beer you enjoy, and don’t drink more than a couple a day. And remember, just because the beer might be giving you strong bones doesn’t mean you can jump from a second floor balcanoy.

3. Red wine for fighting cancer
Some studies on the antioxidants found in red wine have shown that they may help prevent the development of certain types of cancer. Red wine is full of polyphenols that are thought to have some significant anticancer properties.
For example, resveratrol has been shown to “reduce tumor incidence in animals by affecting one or more stages of cancer development.” It inhibits the growth of many different kinds of cancer cells.
Of course, there have also been some reports that show red wine consumption may slightly increase breast cancer risk. It’s difficult to conclude just what the link is between wine and cancer.

4. Reach out and touch someone
Alcohol has long been known as a “social lubricant,” and studies have shown that sociability is good for your physical and mental health. So, assuming that alcohol increases your sociability (as opposed to making you cry about former lovers and lash out at strangers violently), alcohol can indirectly be good for your health. Of course this benefit disappears if you’re drinking alone in your garage, or you become so intolerable under the influence that alcohol actually strains your relationships.

5. Can beer slow the aging process?
Heavy beer consumption has always been linked to faster aging, but researchers in Austria and the Czech Republic now say that moderate beer consumption can actually slow the aging process. Apparently, the hops in beer have anti-inflammatory properties, and beer also fights free radicals in the body that many believe are responsible for accelerating the aging process.

Of course, new studies are constantly being released about the health effects of alcohol, and the simple truth is the jury is still out. One thing, however, is for sure. If alcohol does have any potential health benefits, it’s only when consumed in moderation. Overdrinking can cause serious health problems, so please keep a close watch on your drinking habits.

(this is an article forwarded by a neurologist friend, it doesn't mean that it negates the negative effects and dark effect of alcohol on health. Alcohol is known to have dangerous effects on the brain, mind and body. These effects might start from the single dose of the same. It is medically suggested for a person to get treated for alcohol addiction the moment its brought to notice by others
