moderate alcohol:

    Booze has become a coping mechanism for many Britons during the pandemic. With pubs and restaurants closed and the government ordering us to stay at home, people's drinking habits have changed over the past year. Almost half (48 per cent) of British respondents to the Global Drug Survey in September last year admitted they were consuming more alcohol than before the coronavirus outbreak.  And according to a new study of 1,000 adults commissioned by the low-abv alcohol company CleanCo, while people's primary reason for enjoying a tipple pre-Covid was social, 30 per cent admit they now reach for a glass to help them forget about their worries or alleviate boredom.  Experts from the brand, founded by ex-Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, have teamed up with British life coach Michael Cloonan to identify 10 typical pandemic drinking personalities. From The Marker - who marks the end of their working day by...

    By Robert Preidt, HealthDay Reporter (HealthDay) TUESDAY, Dec. 8, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Alcohol poses the greatest threat to brain health at three periods of a person's life, according to new research. During those three periods -- from conception to birth, from ages 15 to 19, and after age 65 -- people undergo "dynamic" brain changes that may be particularly sensitive to the harmful effects of alcohol, researchers say. Worldwide, about 10% of pregnant women drink. Heavy drinking during pregnancy can cause fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, and even low or moderate drinking during pregnancy is associated with poorer brain health and behavior in children, according to the authors of a paper published Dec. 7 in the BMJ journal. More than 20% of teens ages 15-19 in wealthy nations report at least occasional binge drinking. Research shows that binge drinking in the teen years is associated with reduced brain volume, poorer...
    DRINKING alcohol at a moderate level “damages the brain” during three key life stages, experts have warned. Many people have been over consuming their favourite tipple during the coronavirus pandemic due to unprecedented stress levels and experts have claimed that this could be detrimental in certain age groups. 4Experts have warned that drinking alcohol can damage the brain at three key life stages Credit: Getty Images - Getty The quiz above lets you discover if you’re drinking too much after it was revealed that more than four million over 50s were binge drinking at least once a week during lockdown. New research from the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has stated that there are three periods of brain change that could make you sensitive to the effects of alcohol if you over consume during these periods. But what are the three age ranges and what does the evidence say? 1. From...
    Passing out drunk could more than double the risk of later developing dementia, a study has found, with just one drink a day raising the risk by 22 per cent. Researchers looked at dementia diagnoses in more than 130,000 adults in Europe who had reported their drinking habits some 14 years prior.  Those who said they had lost consciousness after drinking had a two-fold increased risk of dementia.  This was even if they regarded themselves as generally moderate drinkers with the occasional binge session. Alcohol was toxic to nerve cells in the brain and caused serious damage to them when people went overboard on their drinking, the study said. The risk of dementia was even apparent for those who drank as little as two or three units or more of alcohol per day - the equivalent of a pint of beer or a large glass of wine. These 'heavy' drinkers, breaching recommended limits...
    Moderate drinking — is it a curse or a cure? Tippling’s reputation for helping or harming our health flips so frequently that it’s enough to make anyone’s head spin. One week, positive research has careful drinkers crying ‘Cheers’. The next, scientists report an alcohol peril that has the abstainers saying ‘Told you so’. In the latest twist, a major new U.S. study of midlifers says drinking in moderation may be beneficial for our brains, helping to protect against dementia in old age. Researchers from the University of Georgia say they have identified what they call a ‘U-shaped relationship’ between alcohol and brain health. Moderate drinking — is it a curse or a cure?

    The Nanny State has survived wars, economic downturns and election upheavals. It has shown itself stronger even than a major, worldwide pandemic. From semi-reasonable mandates such as requiring masks when in large groups, to the absurd, such as wearing a mask while walking alone with your dog, Nanny State regulators at all levels of government have been busy little bees during this coronavirus pandemic. Not satisfied with limiting its intrusive meddling to measures at least marginally related to the pandemic, however, Big Brother now has focused its attention on social drinking — working to stop responsible adults from having a couple of drinks with dinner or during happy hour on occasion. The vehicle for this latest nosiness is the drafting of new 2020 Dietary Guidelines by a government advisory committee. These dietary busy bodies are recommending that adults should not consume more than one drink per day. As with many...

    Here’s something worth drinking to. A recently published study shows that while drinking alcohol isn’t necessarily healthy, there are some benefits associated with low to moderate drinking. That doesn’t mean, however, that there aren’t any risks associated with drinking, even if it isn’t heavy or regular. The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Georgia, California State University and the Beijing Institute of Respiratory Medicine, was published Monday by the JAMA Network. It focused on the relationship between low to moderate levels of drinking and cognitive function and rates of decline. The researchers measured the cognitive functions of 19,887 participants from 1996 to 2008. Researchers found that low to moderate drinkers showed consistently high cognitive function trajectories and had slower rates of decline compared to those who never drink. Not surprisingly, heavy drinking was not found to be associated with higher cognitive scores. The researchers did point out,...
    (CNN) — If you enjoy a daily cocktail or some wine with dinner, you’ll want to raise your glass to this: A new study found low to moderate drinking may improve cognitive function for White middle-aged or older adults. Low to moderate drinking was defined as less than eight drinks per week for women and less than 15 drinks per week for men. The findings support prior research which found that, generally, one standard drink a day for women and two a day for men — which is the US guidance — appears to offer some cognitive benefits. A standard alcoholic drink in the US is defined as 14 grams or milliliters of alcohol. That measurement varies around the world; for example, a standard drink is 8 grams in the UK and 10 grams in Australia. In Australia the guidelines suggest no more than 10 standard drinks a week. “There is now...
    A DAILY pint of beer or glass of wine boosts brain power and protects against memory loss in old age, a study suggests. Moderate drinkers scored consistently higher than heavy-boozers and teetotallers in a range of mental ability tests. 1A pint of beer or glass of wine a day could boost brain power, experts sayCredit: Getty - Contributor They also remained mentally sharp for longer as they aged. Researchers at the University of Georgia, in Athens, quizzed 19,887 people with an average age of 62 on their drinking habits. They then sat at least three rounds of tests, two or more years apart and spaced over a period of up to 12 years. Put to the test The tests analysed their memory, thinking skills, language, understanding and knowledge. Those who drank a moderate amount of alcohol - less than 15 drinks a week for men and eight for women -...

    Even drinkers who stick to the weekly ‘low-risk’ alcohol guidelines are at greater risk of cancer and early death, scientists say. In the UK, low-risk drinking is classified as six pints of beer spread out over the week. However, experts say that even sticking to this can harm one’s health — and even cause hospitalization or death. Researchers from Canada made the discovery after evaluating alcohol-related harms on national and regional scales or by demographic. Professor Adam Sherk of the University of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada, and his colleagues used an open-access model dubbed ‘InterMAHP’ — ‘International Model of Alcohol Harms and Policies.’ In particular, the team focused on alcohol consumption practices in British Columbia during 2014, analyzing anonymized data from three sources. Low-risk drinking These were substance use surveys, hospital data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information and mortality data from Statistics Canada. According to the guidelines...
