DLM: Alcohol (2001)
The ADA 2001 Hyperlipidemia MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components (all of the components of current evidence analysis include: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
Alcohol (Hyperlipidemia 2001)
Population based (studies related to a specific group of inhabitants) and cohort studies suggest an inverse relationship between moderate alcohol consumption and CVD. A consistent coronary protective effect has been observed for consumption of 1 to 2 drinks per day of an alcohol-containing beverage. However, higher intakes are associated with increased mortality. Most cohort studies do not support an association between the type of alcoholic beverage and prevention of heart disease. However, a few have suggested that wine may be more beneficial than beer or spirits.
