alcohol consumption. This could argue their search strategy for the cardioprotective effect of alcohol was too narrow as alcohol is also observed to produce a cardioprotective effect by a reduction in platelet stickiness and in the production of blood clotting proteins that reduces the potential for blood clots to form, as well as facilitating the breakdown of blood clots that have already formed. In addition alcohol has an endothelial anti-inflammatory effect on for example, C-reactive protein (CRP). (Rimm E et al 1999. Wannamethee S et al 2003. Booyse F et al 2007. Pai J et al 2006. Imhof A et al 2001.)

11.The evidence quality for risk of oesophageal cancer, especially in heavy alcohol drinkers appears correctly rated as B. The evidence quality for risk of oropharyngeal cancer, again especially in heavy alcohol drinkers, appears to be incorrectly rated as C, and should be rated as B. Again this review has not considered more recent literature, (World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). 2012)

12.There is a balance between the risks and benefits of alcohol for any individual. The benefits appear to outweigh the risks for light to moderate drinkers older than the mid 50s. The risks (predominantly due to accidents and binge patterns of drinking both of which were not considered in this review) outweigh the benefits in youth. (Connor et al 2005).
