The papers in this volume examine the potential health benefits of mild-to-moderate alcohol consumption, especially red wine, in the prevention of coronary heart disease. Additional studies examine the health risks associated with excessive alcohol intake. The mechanisms of cardioprotection are examined by basic and clinical researchers and cardiovascular scientists involved in research on free radicals, oxidative stress, radiation, and antioxidants. These state-of-the-art papers aim to shed new light on the mechanism of alcohol-mediated cellular protection.
