... I wouldn't worry about it. It's not as if you drink heavily every day. That would be another story. You are not going to damage your liver overnight.

... jcorn, I don't think there's a problem. In fact I think it's still a good idea to have 2 drinks a day for cardiac health. Don't overdo it though; I'm sure a HEAVY drinker on statins increases his risk for cirrhosis. (10 replies)
