A new study by a group of French scientists essentially says that it is good for you to drink some alcohol with your dinner, but not to over-indulge during the rest of the day. The scientists looked at the drinking habits of men in Ireland and France. While the French drank more often and more in total, the Irish tended to binge drink much more often and not drink as often with meals. The study was conducted over a 10 year period and found that compared with regular drinkers, both binge drinkers and non-drinkers were almost twice as likely to have heart problems, compared to the French men who often just had wine with a meal.
