    So alcohol in moderation is good for your heart and immune system and bad for your liver and kidneys, with various other positive and negative effects contingent upon gender. So it's not really good or bad for you, it just helps certain things at the expense of other things. If you've got a weak heart and a healthy liver and are skinny then I guess it's good, or if the opposite then bad. For careful use in some sort of health minmaxing system.
