The Path Ahead: What Should We Tell Our Patients About Alcohol?

The Path Ahead: What Should We Tell Our Patients About Alcohol?

Ratings: (0)|Views: 267|Likes:

Over the years I have written several articles about environmental toxins such as mercury and persistent organic pollutants and nutritional deficiencies such as vitamins D and K2 and iodine. The clinical applications are straightforward: decrease exposure to toxins and optimize intake of nutrients. But what about alcohol? Excess alcoholic consumption is clearly a serious clinical problem in North America, with a prevalence of lifetime and 12-month alcohol abuse of 17.8% and 4.7%, and prevalence of lifetime and 12-month alcohol dependence of 12.5% and 3.8%.1 On the other hand, teetotalers do not live as long and have a higher incidence of several diseases as those who consume light to moderate amounts of alcohol, suggesting that some alcohol is beneficial. But what is the right amount? The research is unclear and complicated.
