While research has shown moderate drinking appears to be a heart-healthy lifestyle for the average adult, a new study shows why too much of a good thing, can be bad.

The study included more than 20,000 men.

Overall those who had the lowest levels of good cholesterol had the highest blood pressure, no matter how much they drank.

But even high levels of good cholesterol did not appear to protect the heaviest drinkers from rising blood pressure.
