"I drink alcohol regularly. Are there any healthy activities I can do to counteract its harms?"
Despite past claims to the contrary, the current evidence makes it pretty clear that even a little alcohol is bad for your health — with links to certain types of cancer, cardiovascular conditions, liver disease and other concerns.
But drinking can still be part of a healthy lifestyle if done in moderation, says Eric Rimm, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health — meaning no more than two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women.
