“I wonder if this is instrumental in the Arhythmia epidemic?”
Deficiency of minerals like calcium, potassium and especially magnesium can be considered to be the main cause.
Consumption of alcoholic beverages dramatically increases also the consumption of magnesium.
You can’t easily replace the loss of magnesium caused by just two glasses of wine.
“Heart palpitations, “flutters” or racing heart, otherwise called arrhythmias, usually clear up quite dramatically on 500 milligrams of magnesium citrate once or twice daily or faster if given intravenously.”
