Cardio­vascular System

Throughout the developed world, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and accounts for up to 50% of all deaths. For prevention, the first priority is a healthy lifestyle, which may include moderate wine consumption. Consistently, during the last 40 years, scientific studies have shown that consuming moderate amounts of wine/alcoholic beverages, the rate of cardiovascular diseases is considerably lower than with abstinence. The heart attack risk can be lowered by 20%-30%. This relationship is particularly pronounced with increasing prevalence of risk factors, so especially in middle and older age individuals.
