Background— Heart failure (HF) is the leading cause of hospitalization among the elderly, and 1 in 5 adults aged 40 years will develop HF in their lifetime. Data on the effects of moderate alcohol consumption on the risk of HF have been sparse and inconsistent. This study sought to evaluate the association between moderate alcohol consumption and incident HF. Methods and Results— A total of 21 601 participants of the Physicians' Health Study I who were free of HF and provided data on alcohol…

Alcohol consumption and risk of incident heart failure in older men: a prospective cohort study
Aims Light-to-moderate drinking has been associated with reduced risk of heart failure (HF). We have examined the association between alcohol consumption and incident HF in older British men. Methods
Alcohol consumption and risk of heart failure: the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study.
TLDR
In the community, alcohol consumption of up to 7 drinks/week at early-middle age is associated with lower risk for future HF, with a similar but less definite association in women than in men.
cohort study heart failure in older men : a prospective Alcohol consumption and risk of incident and
TLDR
Stratified analysis showed heavy drinking was associated with increased HF risk only in those with ECG evidence of myocardial ischaemia, and there was no evidence that light-tomoderate drinking is beneficial for the prevention of HF in older men without a history of an MI.
Alcohol and Incident Heart Failure Among Middle-Aged and Elderly Men: Cohort of Swedish Men
TLDR
In this cohort of Swedish men, there was a U-shaped relationship between alcohol consumption and HF incidence, with a nadir at light-to-moderate intake, and heavy intake did not seem protective.
Breakfast cereals and risk of heart failure in the physicians' health study I.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a higher intake of whole grain breakfast cereals is associated with a lower risk of HF, and specific nutrients that are responsible for such a protection are determined.

Moderate alcohol consumption and risk of heart failure among older persons.
TLDR
increasing levels of moderate alcohol consumption are associated with a decreasing risk of heart failure among older persons, independent of a number of confounding factors and does not appear to be entirely mediated by a reduction in MI risk.
Heart failure in the general population of men--morbidity, risk factors and prognosis.
TLDR
Coronary heart disease and hypertension were the most common concomitant diseases and mortality after the diagnosis was increased eight times, while risk factors were similar to those in coronary heart disease, and also alcohol abuse, but not high total cholesterol, low physical activity or psychological stress.
Prior alcohol consumption and mortality following acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Self-reported moderate alcohol consumption in the year prior to AMI is associated with reduced mortality following infarction, and the association was similar for total and cardiovascular mortality, among both men and women, and among different types of alcoholic beverages.
Alcohol Consumption and Risk for Congestive Heart Failure in the Framingham Heart Study
TLDR
The relation of alcohol consumption to the risk for congestive heart failure is probably complex, reflecting the interplay of its coronary protective effects and its myocardial toxic effects.

TLDR
There is some emerging evidence that suggests light drinking (1 to 14 drinks per week) is safe and even beneficial in HF patients with ischemic left ventricular dysfunction (LVD), however, there are no effects of light drinking inHF patients with nonischemic LVD.
