Relation between average alcohol consumption and disease: an overview.
Eur Addict Res. 2001 Aug; 7(3):117-27.EA

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To conduct an overview of alcohol-related health consequences and to estimate relative risk for chronic consequences and attributable fractions for acute consequences.

METHODS

Identification of alcohol-related consequences was performed by means of reviewing and evaluating large-scale epidemiological studies and reviews on alcohol and health, including epidemiological contributions to major social cost studies. Relative risks and alcohol-attributable fractions were drawn from the international literature and risk estimates were updated, whenever possible, by means of meta-analytical techniques.

RESULTS

More than 60 health consequences were identified for which a causal link between alcohol consumption and outcome can be assumed.

CONCLUSIONS

Future research on alcohol-related health consequences should focus on standardization of exposure measures and take into consideration both average volume of consumption and patterns of drinking.
