Alcohol helps you think!
I do however turn to the side and raise an eyebrow about the fact that this study was conducted by Aussies.

Well, when you drink, it causes your blood vessels to expand.
When this happens, this can cause the following: stuff like chloresterol can be dislodged or find it more difficult to find a spot to stick to, it increases circulation because more red blood cells can go through the same arteries/veins, and it keeps the vessels themselves from being sticks-in-the-mud, keeps 'em limber.
For this reason, it is suggested that you have occaisional glasses of wine because it will help your heart stay healthy.
I didn't even have to Google this one; I'm living it. Hic!
Correction: when you drink anything with significant amounts of ALCOHOL. Drinking large amounts of Grape Nehi or Orange Crush won't do anything other than increase your chances of contracting diabetes.
