The researchers created a database of more than 1,000 alcohol studies and data sources, as well as death and disability records from 195 countries and territories between 1990 and 2016. The goal was to estimate how alcohol affects the risk of 23 health problems. The number that jumped out was zero at the end.
"What was underestimated is surprising that no alcohol consumption is good for you," said Emmanuela Gakidou, professor of global health at the University of Washington and lead author of the report
"People should not think about it anymore that one or two drinks a day are good for you, and it's best not to drink at all. "
The report found that 2.8 million people around the world died of alcohol-related deaths in 201
This is a sobering report for the 2 billion people who drink. The report challenges the controversial hypothesis that moderate drinking provides a clear health benefit. This has prevailed in the 1990s, after the news of the "French paradox": The French have low-fat diet despite low-fat diet. Some researchers pointed to the consumption of red wine as protective.
Numerous peer review studies have found that people who drink one or two drinks have fewer heart disease than people who drink or drink too much.
The Study While the lower risk of heart disease from moderate alcohol intake and a decrease in the rate of diabetes among women was identified, many risks met the benefits – breast cancer, throat cancer, stroke, cirrhosis, tuberculosis, interpersonal violence, self-harm, and traffic accidents. – The Washington Post
