OK to drink beer after a heart attack

| No Comments

This article talks about a study that was done that found it is OK for people to drink moderate amounts of alcohol after experiencing a heart attack. In fact, the study found that those who continued to drink moderate amounts of alcohol after a heart attack actually were less likely to die from cardiovascular disease compared to those that stopped drinking all together. This is surprising for many people considering that previously the the consensus said that alcohol should be avoided if you are experiencing cardiovascular complications. However, drinking more than 2 drinks per day is still thought to be bad for your health, particularly your heart and liver. This argument uses logos to get its point across and I think it is fairly effective.
