Always the same question!
Whenever researchers compare non-drinkers with alcohol consumers they should declare that the non-drinkers are lifelong abstainers or not. If they use people who stopped drinking the last month, one ore more years or are lifelong abstainers, makes a big difference. There are not many lifelong abstainers in a society. Most abstainers had to give up drinking because of health reasons and this health deficiency stays for a lifetime and affects the result of such studies. Those researchers who do not declare clearly the facts arouse suspicion to act on behalf of the alcohol industry. And there have been too many similar studies on the market the last years.
