Alcohol consumption and healthy ageing: more research needed

The aging population is growing. Therefore, it is important to examine the impact of lifestyle factors on the aging process. This systematic review and meta-analysis investigates the association of alcohol consumption (and smoking) with healthy ageing. Compared to non-drinkers, drinkers had a slightly higher chance to age healthily. However, results should be interpreted with caution. The study is published in the scientific journal BMJ Open.

More research needed on effect of alcohol consumption on gastrointestinal cancer survival

Alcohol consumption is an established risk factor for the development of certain types of cancer. A new systematic review looks into the role of alcohol on the survival prognosis among patients with gastrointestinal cancer. The results, published in the scientific journal Best Practice and Research: Clinical Gastroenterology, show that light alcohol consumption probably does not have a negative effect on the survival prognosis.

Healthy lifestyle, including moderate alcohol consumption, lowers the risk of CVD and mortality in older women

A healthy lifestyle lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and mortality. A new meta-analysis looks at four lifestyle factors, including alcohol consumption, among middle-aged and elderly women specifically. The results indicate that a healthy lifestyle, including moderate alcohol consumption, lowers the risk of cardiovascular diseases and mortality. The study is recently published in the European Journal of Epidemiology. Read more

Meta-analyses on the association between alcohol and skin cancer: no firm conclusions

Two meta-analyses recently investigated the association between alcohol and two types of skin cancer. Both studies carefully conclude that each glass of alcohol could increase the risk of these specific types of skin cancer. It is still unknown whether alcohol causes this effect or that other confounding factors play a role. The underlying mechanism is also unknown. More research is therefore necessary before strong conclusions can be drawn. The results are published in the scientific journals British Journal of Dermatology and European Journal of Nutrition.
