Two alcoholic drinks a day over a long period gave male heart attack survivors a 42% lower risk of dying from heart disease than non-drinkers, researchers found.
Their risk of death from any cause was also reduced by 14%, though the benefits were only seen with "moderate" drinking.
Higher consumption wiped out the survival gains and increased the chances of dying so they matched those of non-drinkers.
