London: Drinking wine in moderation may be associated with a lower risk of developing depression, a new study has claimed. Moderate amounts of alcohol consumed may have similar protective effects on depression to those that have been observed for coronary heart disease, researchers said. Few studies have looked at the relationship between mental health and moderate alcohol intake. Researchers report on a cohort study that followed over 5,500 light-to-moderate drinkers for up to seven years. The results show an inverse relationship between alcohol intake and incidence of depression.
