English term or phrase: U or J shape
Alcohol is not an essential nutrient. The relationship between alcohol and total mortality has a U or J shape. Non-drinkers have a slightly higher risk than moderate drinkers. Constantly drinking more than 30 grams (3 units) per day for women and 40 grams (4 units) for men can lead to cardiovascular disorders such as high blood pressure and stroke28. Alcohol in great excess has been known to have a direct effect on the cardiac muscle, and individuals in this category run the risk of dilated cardiomyopathy.
