Alcohol Related Health Problems

A recent global research study published in the August 28 issue of Investors Business Daily looked at alcohol use and its health effects in 195 countries between 1990 and 2016. It found while moderate drinking may protect against heart disease, this is outweighed by the risk of cancer and other diseases. The study of the global burden of disease found that while 914 out of every 100,000 non-drinkers would develop an alcohol-related health problem, i.e., suffer an injury, 4 additional people would be affected if they drank one drink per day, but 63 more would be affected if they drank two drinks per day. 338 more people would be affected if they drank five drinks per day.
