In this prospective study of a Mediterranean population (more than 22,800 men and women), moderate drinkers compared to abstainer, had a lower risk of heart failure. Wine was the preferred alcoholic beverage. Heart failure (HF), often referred to as congestive heart failure, occurs when the heart is unable to pump sufficiently to maintain the blood flow in order to meet the body's needs. The problem can originate from damage or overloading. Common causes of HF include high blood pressure, atrial…
The current systematic review suggests that the strongest adherence to a Mediterranean diet was inversely associated with cancer mortality and the risk of a variety of cancer types. Approximately, 5-10% of all tumor diseases are caused by genetic predisposition, while the remaining 90-95% can be explained by unfavorable environmental conditions or an unhealthy lifestyle. It has been suggested that 30% of cancers can be prevented by a healthy diet, however, food simultaneously can contain both ingredients that are protective and…
This meta-analysis showed an overall increased gastric cancer risk when consuming alcoholic beverages, however, the subgroup analysis revealed a protective effect among moderate drinking Europeans. Chinese scientists performed a meta-analysis (*) to explore the relationship between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and gastric cancer. The analysis included 23 cohort studies and a total of almost 6 million subjects. The results indicated that the consumption of alcoholic beverages increased gastric cancer risk by 17%, compared to alcohol abstinence. However, a subgroup…
The results of the current study suggest that individuals who drank moderately on a near-daily basis were more likely to live to age 85 without cognitive impairment than those who drank less frequently or did not drink alcoholic beverages at all. US researchers examined the link between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and cognitively healthy longevity (CHL). The alcohol consumption of 1,344 older community-dwelling adults was assessed by questionnaires and cognitive function in approximate four-year intervals using a standard dementia…
The current prospective study provides compelling data that memory function in aging individuals can be positively influenced in the long-term by physical activity, moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages and social engagement. Lifestyle is believed to have significant influence on cognitive aging. Dutch and US researchers investigated a group of 1,966 men and women (age 65 and older) over a period of 14 years. Episodic memory tests were performed every 3 years. Lifestyle habits were repeatedly assessed using self-report measures. Besides…
