Binge Drinking Tied To Double Risk Of Heart Disease

Freitag 26. November 2010 von htm

A study that compared the drinking patterns of middle aged men in France to counterparts in Belfast in Northern Ireland, found that binge drinking was linked to nearly double the risk of heart disease, suggesting that Belfast’s binge drinking culture, where there is a tendency to drink a lot of alcohol in one day at the weekend, could be fuelling the city’s high rate of heart disease.
Although other studies have already established a link between drinking alcohol and heart disease and premature death, the researchers wanted to look in more detail at the role of drinking patterns and type of alcohol. So they set up a study to investigate drinking habits in two culturally diverse countries. (Source: Medical News Today, 11/24/10)
