Large Study Shows No Net Benefit from Alcohol

PositiveTips

Alcohol is the third most important modifiable risk factor for death and disability. It is linked with more than 60 health disorders. A study of over 114,000 adults from 12 countries found no net benefit from the use of alcohol when cancer, heart disease, injury and overall death rates were considered. This study examined a range of income levels, also. 

PositiveTip: If you don't use alcohol you should not start; if you do drink, evidence is growing stronger that you should quit now!
