A new study out of the University of Calgary has shown that drinking a moderate amount of alcohol is good for your health.

One team of researchers reviewed 63 studies and found out that drinking a moderate amount of alcohol (one drink for women, two for men) significantly increased the amount of "good" cholesterol which protects against heart disease.

Another team reviewed 84 studies and found that those who drink one drink or less per day are 14% to 25% less likely to develop heart disease compared with those who don't drink alcohol.

All of this is good news of course, but researches did warn that drinking too much can be bad for you. Most people knew that already, but they threw that in there just to warn people. Probably for legal reasons too.

Given this fantastic news, order a glass of wine tonight and be healthy! I've heard red wine is even better for the heart.
