Caution: Can alcohol drinking be good for hearts of men ?

One always hears that drinking large quantities of alcohol on a sustained basis is not good for the body, including damage to the brain, to the liver, and overall damage to the body. At the same time, there has been research that shows that a moderate amount of alcohol is typically good for people, as long as this is in control; and alcohols such as wine are better than empty alcohols such as beer. However, a specific research has questioned whether even larger amounts of alcohol could be good for the heart, but only for men (and it is already known that large amounts of alcohol is bad for the heart) (link to article):

Here’s a shocker: Supping large amounts of booze is good for the heart – but only when it comes to men. The study, which monitored more than 41,000 people aged between 29 and 69, showed that drinking alcohol could cut the risk of heart disease by almost a third in men. However, the study found no significant effect in women, reports The Times.
The results showed moderate male drinkers could cut their risk by 51 per cent, high drinkers by 54 per cent and very high drinks by 50 per cent. Health campaigners have however warned that the findings should be treated with caution.
