This Could be a Problem


From the Stonehearth Newsletter

According to the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health men who drink four pints of beer a week could be increasing the risk of needing hospital treatment during their lifetime, a study has suggested. Researchers studied 5,772 Scottish men for up to 35 years. They found those who drank between eight and 14 units a week were more likely to be admitted to hospital than those who drank fewer units or nothing. That is the equivalent of four pints of beer, eight shots of spirits or eight small glasses of wine.

The men, from Glasgow, Clydebank and Grangemouth, were all aged between 35 to 64 when they were recruited between 1970 and 1973.

Drinkers were also likely to be kept in hospital for longer than people who drank less or abstained, according to the research by the universities of Glasgow and Bristol, which has been published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

 

This looks like bad news for me, Alwyn Cosgrove and Coach Dos.

  1. Well, if all 8-14 units were consumed in the same night, the higher risk of hospital admission most likely relates to the fact that men aged 35-64 do stupid shit when we’re drunk.
