Dr. Michael Ni, School of Public Health and the State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Science University of Hongkong said that additional proof indicates vigilance in endorsing modest drinking as part of a wholesome diet.
Participants were a mix of non-drinkers or moderate drinkers - defined as 14 drinks or less per week for men and 7 drinks or less per week for women - who were followed for up to a four-year period between 2009 and 2013. 64% of the participating men were non-drinkers at the time of the survey, irrespective of the fact that they had never drunk or quit drinking sometime in the past, while 88% of the women were non-drinkers.
Even though a glass of wine is good for relaxing after a hard day, sooner or later it will affect the person's mental health, in the long run. The researchers juxtaposed their discoveries with data from the National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Associated Conditions a prototypical survey of 31,079 people managed by the National Institute for Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism in the US.
Women who quit alcohol may have an improved health-related quality of life, especially their mental well-being, according to a study unveiled on Monday.
Men and women who were lifetime abstainers had the highest level of mental well-being at the start of the study (baseline). These outcomes were apparent after adjusting for sociodemographic characteristics, body mass index, smoking status, and other elements.
"Global alcohol consumption is expected to continue to increase unless effective strategies are employed", says Dr. Ni. Their discoveries propose awareness in guidance that average drinking could enhance health linked quality of life.
