The latest study finds that the same amount of alcohol consumed may not make you healthier, according to the latest research.
The findings, from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, appear to contradict the popular belief that alcohol consumption can lower your risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
The Mayo Clinic researchers conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies published between 1998 and 2015 to assess the evidence on the health effects of alcohol.
They found that studies on alcohol and its effects on people with and without diabetes found that “a low alcohol consumption has no adverse health effects,” Mayo Clinic officials wrote in a statement.
The authors said the findings are based on the best available evidence.
They found “a consistent finding that drinking alcohol is associated with a lower risk of death,” Mayo officials wrote.
The research, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was supported by the National Institutes of Health and by the American Diabetes Association.
