Overview: Alcohol consumption has been associated with negative cardiovascular outcomes, yet many clinicians still counsel patients that it is okay in moderation.

In this episode we will explore the latest RCT out of Australia, which suggest that no level of alcohol intake is safe when it comes to a-fib.
