Can Moderate Drinking Reduce The Risk of Diabetes?

Posted on
It turns out that drinking alcohol regularly can reduce an individual’s risk of diabetes. A new study printed in the journal Diabetologia examined 70,551 Danish men and women, and suggested that drinking alcohol a few times per week was associated with a lower risk of developing diabetes.  

According to researchers, wine has been found to be especially beneficial, likely because it contains chemical compounds which improve blood sugar balance. The authors of the research–from the University of Southern Denmark–wrote, “Our findings suggest that alcohol drinking frequency is related to the risk of diabetes and that ingestion of alcohol over a few weekdays is associated with the lowest risks of diabetes, even after taking average weekly alcohol consumption into consideration.”
