My main interest is to investigate mechanisms that could explain the potential beneficial effects of moderate alcohol intake in relation to cardiovascular disease, expecially coronary heart disease. More specifically, I am investigating the effect of moderate alcohol consumption on lipoprotein subclasses and their relationship to cardiovascular disease risk. In addition, I am looking at the effect of moderate drinking on abdominal obesity, measured by DXA scans, and different markers of glycemic control. My PhD is composed of two parts: a systematic review and a randomized crossover intervention trial in which one drink per day (12-15 g) is compared with abstention.
