After 32 long years, the researchers re-surveyed the women and at the end of the study in 2009, they found that while the ones who drank spirits more than twice a month had almost 50 percent higher chance of cancer, the ones who drank beer once or twice per week had a 30 percent lower heart attack risk. According to The Mirror, author Dr. Dominique Hange from the University of Gothenburg commented:
"Previous research also suggests that alcohol in moderate quantities can have a certain protective effect, but there is still uncertainty as to whether or not this really is the case. Our results have been checked against other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which substantiates the findings. At the same time, we were unable to confirm that moderate wine consumption has the same effect, so our results also need to be confirmed through follow-up studies."
