Are There Certain Types Of Alcohol That Might Be Beneficial To A Man's Health?

Question: Are there certain types of alcohol that might be beneficial to a man's health?

Answer: It's commonly believed that wine will lead to a reduced risk of heart disease over other forms of alcohol. In actual fact, if you look closely at the evidence, all forms of alcohol will lead to a reduced risk of heart disease. Wine, and in particular red wine, is promoted because red wine is made with the skin of the grapes, and the skin of the grapes is where some antioxidant compounds are found, such as resveratrol. Red wine may offer a slight additional advantage, but in general, my advice to patients is: consume alcohol in moderation and the type of alcohol that you enjoy.
