While we have discussed the dangerous effects of alcohol abuse and misuse, that doesn't mean it's always bad. Besides being part of many complex and delicious beverages, there are any number of studies which show that alcohol is linked to health benefits.


That doesn't mean it's all good news, either, or that the evidence is a slam dunk. There's certainly enough, though, to warrant a thorough review. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.
