Expatriates with international private medical insurance may want to drink at moderate levels, as this has been said to cut the risk of a person suffering from coronary artery disease.
HEART UK nutritionist and registered dietician Linda Main noted: "The beneficial effect is small and insufficient to merit alcohol consumption in those that currently abstain."
Furthermore, drinking heavily is linked to higher risks of this ailment, she pointed out.
The expert noted alcohol boosts high-density lipoprotein levels, which is a kind of "good cholesterol".
Between one and three units of alcohol every day has health benefits and the type of beverage consumed "appears to be irrelevant", Ms Main asserted.
However, drinks high in polyphenols – such as red grapes, juices and certain wines – have also been linked to good cardiac health, she said.
Recent research published in the European Journal of Epidemiology suggested moderate consumption of beer can reduce the likelihood of someone suffering from heart disease by 31 per cent.
