Abstract: Links are established between alcohol and cardiomyopathy, systemic hypertension, stroke, arrhythmias, and coronary heart disease. At heavier drinking levels, harmful effects predominate. At lighter drinking levels, benefit for coronary heart disease dominates most statistics. Differences in risk related to specific traits require that any clinical recommendation about alcohol consumption be tailored for each individual.
