In comparison to those that abstained from alcohol, the hazard ratios for coronary disease were .98 for those with an alcohol intake of .1 to 4.9 g/d, .59 for those with an alcohol intake of 3.0 to 14.9 g/d, .38 for those with an alcohol intake of 15.0 to 29.9 g/d, and .86 for those with an alcohol intake of 30 g/d or more. Those with an alcohol intake of 5.0 to 29.9 g/d tended to display results of a significantly lower risk similar to the lower risk associated with remaining healthy lifestyle behaviors. This study proved that even in men who were already low at risk due to their healthy lifestyle behaviors, moderate amounts of alcohol was associated with lower risks

Though some researchers chose to study alcohol consumption and its relationship to coronary heart disease in men that lead healthy lifestyles, others decided to focus on how red wine affects the coronary flow reserve, which is the maximum increase in blood flow through the coronary arteries above the normal resting volume, in drinkers. The purpose of this metabolic study was to determine whether moderate consumption of red wine and de-alcoholized red wine improved the coronary flow reserve....
