This prospective Danish study examined the influence of wine consumption during adolescence on the weight gain until midlife. The results show that among non-smoking adolescents (average age at baseline 17 years), alcohol and particular wine consumption seems to be related to less weight gain until midlife during the 20 year follow-up period. The researchers conclude that whether this may be related to a specific lifestyle, including a health diet and habits associated with wine and drinking of alcoholic beverages during…
The researchers examined the individual and synergistic effects of the modifiable lifestyle factors of smoking and drinking on overall and site-specific cancer risk….. Data from 26,607 adults, 35-69 years old participating in the Alberta’s Tomorrow Project were analysed. Associations between the consumption of alcoholic beverages, cigarette smoking, and cancer risk were examined. A total of 2,370 participants developed cancer during the study follow-up period. The results showed that alcohol consumption was associated with colon cancer risk among men, showing evidence…
Two recent publications have reviewed the scientific evidence concerning the effects/impact of moderate wine consumption on human health. One paper(1) gathered strong scientific arguments in favor of a low and moderate wine consumption as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle with special consideration of the wine-derived polyphenols. The other review(2) summarised the accumulated evidence correlating moderate red wine consumption with prevention of coronary heart disease (CHD) and focused on the different mechanisms underlying this relationship…… There seems to be…
In this Health and Retirement Study (HRS), moderate drinkers of middle and older ages had a lower mortality rate compared to lifetime abstainers. The HRS study is among the largest and well-designed studies of older adults (> 56 years of age) anywhere in the world. The 8000 participants were followed over a period of 15 years to assess the relationship between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and mortality risk. Their drinking habits, chronic health conditions and ability to manage daily…
A J-shaped relationship between long-term moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages and self-rated health was found in the Stockholm Public Health Cohort… Lifestyle factors and longstanding illnesses were assessed among over 30 000 individuals over a period of 12 years. Moderate drinkers showed the lowest likelihood of poor self-rated health whereas former sick quitters had the highest odds of rating their health as poorly and experiencing psychological distress. Gemes, K. et al Alcohol consumption trajectories and self-rated health: finding from the…
