But don't worry, light to moderate alcohol consumption does in fact still correlate with healthier hearts.

The new study by Johns Hopkins University and the University of Barcelona does not contradict these previous conclusions.

However, the study found no relationship between the antioxidant in red wine and longevity at low doses – naturally occurring levels found in foods such as red wine, dark chocolate, berries and grapes. CNN reports.

“This study is very important because it demonstrates, in a long-term study with a huge cohort, that (normal) dietary resveratrol levels are not correlated with all-cause mortality,” says Juan Carlos Espin, a research professor at the Spanish National Research Council.
