The largest study ever of alcohol's effects on health reveals modest drinking is good for you. The American Cancer Society has discovered a drink a day for middle aged people reduces the risk of death by 20 percent.

That's in part because alcohol raises levels of H-D-L, the good level of cholesterol.
Alcohol has been linked to an increased risk of breast cancer and other diseases, but the study concludes that in moderation--it's healthful.

A study by researchers in the New England Journal of Medicine says the benefits decrease with heavy consumption.
