  • A recent study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has determined that the health benefits of alcohol depend on a person's age, gender, and overall medical history. The current study indicated that for the general population, two drinks a day for men and one drink a day for women could relate to lower mortality and is unlikely to cause harm; health benefits of alcohol are always of concern to those who see only the dangerous side of drinking.
  • The harmful use of alcohol is associated with several infectious diseases like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). This is because alcohol consumption weakens the immune system and has a negative effect on patientsí adherence to antiretroviral treatment.
  • As people age through adolescence and into young adulthood, they increasingly expect benefits from alcohol consumption and become less convinced of the risks.
  • Alcoholics and individuals that abuse alcohol are much more likely to: have legal issues marital and domestic violence problems, struggle with unemployment, and to live in poverty.
