Wine_bottles_830684_wine_4You may have read about the recent study that showed even one glass of alcohol a day could increase your risk of breast cancer.

Now, a huge study is being undertaken to see if a glass of wine, a beer, or a cocktail every day could prevent a heart attack or help people live longer.

A $100 million clinical trial, conducted by the National Institutes of Health, is underway to determine if one drink a day will prevent heart attacks or strokes or delay death.

Nearly 8,000 volunteers throughout the world will either drink one alcohol beverage a day or abstain from drinking alcohol.

However, alcohol beverage manufacturers are paying for the study.
