Summary

Increasingly, the evidence point to a clear role for high alcohol intake in the cause of major heart disease. Focusing on the pathological effects of high alcohol consumption as well as the potential benefits of moderate use, Alcohol and Heart Disease investigates the effects of alcoholic beverage intake on human cardiac function. The authors examine the interactions of alcohol intake on cardiac cell function, cardiac lipids, stroke, cocaine use, and AIDS. The contributors, who include many experts in the field, use evidence from animal models, epidemiological studies, and medical reports to help define the problem and understand consequences of alcohol consumption on the human heart.
