A study published in the European Heart Journal shows the right amount of drinking and exercise improves your health.

Researchers collected information on 12,000 people and found those who don't drink and don't exercise have up to a 50 percent higher risk of developing heart disease than people who do one or the other, or both. And those with the greatest chance of developing heart disease were physically inactive, heavy drinkers.

The people were the lowest risk for heart disease exercised moderately and had one to 14 drinks a week.
