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…
Scientists have recently entered the scientific debate to discuss previous and current criticisms of the J-shaped curve between wine/alcohol consumption and lower total mortality risk….. Almost a century ago, a study found that moderate drinkers of alcoholic beverages seem to live longer than those who abstain and those who drink heavily. Since then, many studies have shown such a J-shaped relationship between wine/alcohol consumption and the risk to die from any kind of disease (all-cause mortality risk). The lowest risk…

The researchers explained this observation by pointing out to the content of flavonoids in red wine which are potent antioxideants. It has indeed been shown that aging may lead…

Resveratrol has been shown to have numerous beneficial properties on health and is found abundantly in the skins and seeds of berries and grapes. It is a natural polyphenol found in red wine, which has numerous pharmacological properties including…
A study evaluated the association between the amount and frequency of alcohol consumption and incident dementia in 53,311 older Japanese adults over a long follow-up period. A health checkup questionnaire was used to assess the amount and frequency of alcohol consumption. The authors conclude that occasional or daily moderate drinking of alcoholic beverages (≤ 2 units per day), could reduce the risk of incident dementia compared to non-drinkers, with greater benefit for men with this level of daily consumption.
