An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a cardiovascular disease where the aorta in the abdomen is larger than normal.

Alcohol consumption and frailty among elderly: a meta-analysis

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.
