The European scientific platform on moderate beer consumption and health

First meta-analysis on the association between alcohol and local enlargement of the abdominal aorta

The number of elderly is growing in Europe. Two recent studies looked at the association between alcohol consumption and frailty among this group. Elderly who consume alcohol (up to 40 g/day) appear to have a lower risk of frailty compared to their non-drinking peers. It is unclear what causes this association and whether confounding factors are playing a role. The results were recently published in the scientific journals Age and Ageing and Bioscience Trends.

Moderate alcohol consumption within a balanced lifestyle – conference at the European Parliament

On Wednesday 29 November 2017, at the European Parliament in Brussels, a conference took place on moderate alcohol consumption within a balanced lifestyle. European scientists showed that moderate and responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages by healthy adults can be fully compatible with a balanced lifestyle and may incur several health benefits. During the conference, all speakers stressed that harmful consumption of alcohol should be prevented. Education and prevention programmes to target alcohol misuse, with involvement of the alcohol industry, are therefore very important. Read more

Alcohol and incident atrial fibrillation: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Low alcohol consumption (up to 6-7 drinks per week) is not associated with the development of atrial fibrillation. The risk of atrial fibrillation seems to increase with moderate alcohol consumption (1-2 drinks per day) in men and with high alcohol consumption (different definitions) in women. These were the findings of a systematic review and meta-analysis, recently published in the scientific journal International Journal of Cardiology. Read more

Alcohol and gastrointestinal disorders: a systematic review

What we eat and drink can have a lot of influence on our gastrointestinal tract. For the first time, researchers systematically reviewed the effect of alcohol on gastrointestinal disorders. A limited number of available studies indicates that overall alcohol is not associated with the most common gastrointestinal disorders; more than 6 glasses of alcohol per week could have a negative effect. The results are recently published in the scientific journal Best Practice and Research: Clinical Gastroenterology. Read more
