Abstract

According to this study:

 

* The risk of cardiovascular events increases immediately after moderate alcohol consumption. After 24 hours, a protective effect emerges, and the risks of myocardial infarction and hemorrhagic stroke diminish.

 

* The risk of ischemic stroke remains high for a week after moderate drinking. High alcohol consumption confers no benefit.
