It’s the holiday season. Time for celebrating with the bubbly! But how much is too much when it comes to your health?
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association looked at thousands of healthy, middle-aged women and their drinking habits.
Researchers found those who had up to two alcoholic drinks per day did not seem to increase their risk of an irregular heartbeat.
But those who drank more than that demonstrated a slightly increased risk.
Although studies have been done before on the affects of alcohol on heartbeats, most were small and involved men. This is the first study to look at large populations of women.
