Doctors have found how many years will shorten the life of alcohol

Doctors have found how many years will shorten the life of alcohol”

Researchers compared the health and drinking habits of around 600,000 current drinkers in 19 countries worldwide and controlled for age, smoking, history of diabetes, level of education and occupation.

A study conducted in the United Kingdom showed that taking a lot of alcohol per week can dramatically shorten your lifespan.

People who drink more than 350 grams of alcohol per week, about 18 glasses, shorten their lives by about 4-5 years.

One of the authors says that people drinking alcohol should take it down a notch or two if they want to live a longer and happy life and not suffer from several cardiovascular conditions.

There was no increased risk of death for light drinkers.

When it comes to alcohol consumption, it is said to be associated with a lot of health problems.

Those who reported consuming about seven to 14 drinks per week had a lower life expectancy of six months. "The paper estimates a 40-year-old drinking four units a day above the guidelines [the equivalent of drinking three glasses of wine in a night] has roughly two years' lower life expectancy, which is around a 20th of their remaining life". This study was focused at the effect of alcohol use disorders and was conducted over one million adults diagnosed with mental and behavioural disorders or chronic diseases that were attributable to the chronic harmful use of alcohol.
