Do you have a daily drink? New research shows it may affect the health of your heart, but is it something you should be concerned about?
The Doctors discuss a study from the Curie University College of Medicine, which examined the drinking habits of nearly 10 million people. The study found those who drank every day had a 40 percent higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation (an irregular, often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow) when compared to those who only drank twice a week.
Also, the study found that those who are binge drinkers did not show an increased risk for atrial fibrillation.
The Doctors note this study appears to go against the idea that there can be health benefits to low to moderate occasional drinking like getting antioxidants and possibly lowering one's blood pressure. Also, they raise a concern about how the seems to come out against daily moderate drinking and not binge drinking, which can create a slew of possible health risks.
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork adds that if someone is not a drinker at all that they should not take it up for its potential health benefits.
As always, The Doctors stress moderation is key when it comes to drinking and remind all our viewers to drink safely and responsibly.
