This is the first study to demonstrate that high to excessive intake of alcoholic beverages has a marked effect on the incidence of liver cancer in patients with fatty liver disease. The effect of ethanol consumption on liver cancer in patients with fatty liver disease (FLD) is not clear. Japanese researchers investigated the influence of different levels of alcohol intake on liver cancer in a large number of Japanese patients with fatty liver disease diagnosed by ultrasound. A multivariate analysis…
The current study evaluated the association between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and colon cancer recurrence. The results indicate a lower overall mortality associated with red wine consumption… High consumption of alcoholic beverages is associated with a modest increased risk of colon cancer, but its relationship with colon cancer survival has not been elucidated. Scientists from the USA and Canada assessed the association between alcohol consumption and colon cancer outcomes. No statistically significant difference in the disease outcomes between ever…
The present study collected information on measurements of standard drinks and on government produced low-risk consumption guidelines around the world. One of the challenges of international alcohol research and policy is the variability and lack of knowledge of how governments in different countries define a standard drink and low-risk drinking. Consumers and users of standard drinks may not be aware that standards vary from country to country. Reviewing the results from 37 countries showed a wide variation of the standard…
The association between the intake of alcoholic beverages and cardiovascular disease in epidemiological studies could have 2 confounding factors that distort the risk, thus, the abstainers as a reference group as well as underreporting of the actual amount of alcoholic beverages consumed. New methods are available to determine the ethanol consumption and the “sick quitters” are controlled for. Meta-analyses of cohort studies show a J-shaped relationship between the consumption of alcoholic beverages and cardiovascular as well as all-cause mortality, with…
The results of this study show that frequent binge drinking (whether current or past) in young adults is associated with a higher blood pressure. Although it is established that chronic heavy drinking increases the risk of hypertension, little is known about the relationship between binge drinking and blood pressure in young adults. American and Canadian scientists thus aimed to assess the relationship between frequency of binge drinking, both current (at age 24 years) and past (at age 20 years), and…
