Home Science Health To women's health: 1 drink a day

A new U.S. study shows that women who drank the equivalent of one beer or a small glass of wine daily had less risk from chronic medical conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes than nondrinkers or those who drank much more.

This study, which was published in the journal PLoS Medicine, showed that one drink a day for women were better than not drinking at all or drinking four or more drinks at one sitting.

In all, nearly 14,000 women participated in a study called the Nurses' Health Study.

The researchers concluded that women who drank one alcoholic drink per day were 20% more likely to not have any diseases at the age of 70 years than nondrinkers.

And, women were 50% less likely to develop disease if they drank alcohol in moderation 5 to 7 day per week; and were 29% less likely to develop disease if they drank 3 to 4 days per week.
