My goal is moderate drinking as opposed to alcohol free.
While Dr. Morten Gronbaek found exercise and drinking alcohol each had an independent beneficial effect on the heart by increasing good cholesterol (HDL) and removing fatty deposits created by bad cholesterol (LDL) in blood vessel walls; the study determined that drinking and exercise combine to have a greater health benefit than either alone.
The Danish researchers found:
---people who never drink and don't exercise had the highest risk of heart disease.
---people who never drink but do exercise had a 30% lower risk.
---people who drink moderately but never exercise had a 30% lower risk.
---people who drink moderately and exercise had a 50% lower risk.
Dr. Gronbaek says the optimal level for women at risk of coronary heart disease is one drink per day and one to two drinks per day for men.

So, I plan to post moderate
and invite others to join me.
