Moderate alcohol consumption linked to atrial fibrillation
Moderate alcohol consumption linked to atrial fibrillation (July 23, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Sweden - A new report published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology finds that moderate alcohol consumption may raise risk of atrial fibrillation. Researchers studied nearly 80,000 adults between the ages of 45 and 83. Participants were followed for up to 12 years. Results showed that, even in moderation (defined as one-three drinks/day), consumption of wine and hard liquor raised risk of atrial fibrillation and binge drinking as well. There was no such association for moderate consumption of beer.
