A study investigated the relation between the consumption of alcoholic beverages, specific vascular events and mortality in a high-risk population of patients with clinical manifestations of vascular disease and diabetes. The intake of alcoholic beverages among the 5447 participants was assessed and analysed with regards to coronary heart disease (CHD), amputations, stroke, and all-cause and vascular death. After a follow up of 4.7 years, the results showed that moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages (1-2 drinks/day) reduced the risk of a wide range of both fatal and non-fatal vascular events in high-risk patients.
