It indicated that moderate amounts of wine, beer, and liquor can increase heart and brain health, and lower the risk of diabetes.

I took away three drinking tips from this article:
- Watch Your Glass - People tend to pour more alcohol into tall champagne flutes and narrow white-wine glasses, as opposed to red-wine glasses

- Red Meat - the protein in red meat can slow alcohol absorption
So, cheers to good health!
