On Wednesday, a new study done by the researchers on the drinking habits got published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research. This new study brings the decades-old advice for the alcohol under fire. The study shows that even if any person takes moderate alcohol will call for the risk of early death.
As per the new study, it said that when any person takes the drinks lightly for about 4 or more times per week, then there is a risk of early death. This comes even after the federal guidelines that are present for the people about the amount of drink that they should take. It has been said that the people who all are light drinkers or who all take 4 or more times per week had got about 20 per cent risk of dying. The people who all take about 3 or fewer times per week has got less risk of dying than that of 4 or more times.
According to Dr Sarah Hartz, who is an assistant professor of Psychiatry at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis said that this type of cutoff have usually seemed that we should not go for the drink which is more than three times a week. This frequency of drinking seems to matter like the medicine that we take.
As per the study which was done by Hartz along with her colleagues, it said that they had drawn some data from the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS). They have also obtained the records from the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) patients. By obtaining both the data, they have got the insights to the observational which includes about health, drinking, diet as well as mortality rate. The average health survival was said to be tracked between 7 to 10 years.
The paper which was published by the Hartz is said to follow a large research review which is published in August 2018 on The Lancet. The paper which was published shows some more drastic conclusion like the safest drinking level is a myth and there is nothing like that. The drinking habits of the people show that they may suffer some series of diseases like cancer to even more fatal car accidents.
She added by saying that this shows that we should rethink about our drinking habits and have to reframe for the same things.
