Major study reveals that no amount of alcohol is safe

In young people, the biggest causes of alcohol-related deaths were tuberculosis (1.4% of deaths), road injuries (1.2%), and self-harm (1.1%).

Drinking patterns varied globally. It's even higher in Italy, Portugal and Spain. A prime example is Russian Federation where 75% of deaths among men aged 15-55 years are caused by alcohol.

The researchers suggest that the global drinking guidelines need to be revised in light of the new findings and that governments and worldwide organizations should be "refocusing on efforts to lower overall population-level consumption". "Any of these policy actions would contribute to reductions in population-level consumption, a vital step toward decreasing the health loss associated with alcohol use", the researchers said. "But from a cancer-prevention standpoint, drinking the least amount of alcohol possible would be the best strategy". The medical research noted that while women may think that having one glass of wine isn't harmful - they are actually pouring themselves three measures.

The study revealed Irish men are drinking an average of 4.5 drinks a day. The TV host, 51, said a doctor warned him he could not keep drinking 100 units a week.

Carragher: Virgil van Dijk could go down as a Liverpool great
Liverpool's relentless approach for Van Dijk led to them being reported to the Premier League and forced to publicly apologise. Although eyebrows were raised at the time of Van Dijk's move, Klopp believes he has proved to be worth every penny.

The highest amount of male drinkers were found in Denmark, Norway, Germany, Argentina, Poland and France. It was not among the top or bottom 10 for the most or the heaviest drinkers in 2016.

Countries with the lowest percentage of drinking citizens were typically Arab and Middle Eastern nations.

In 2010, Belarus was the country where alcohol was consumed the most, with an average of 17.5 litres drunk per capita, according to the World Health Organization.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in its 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that if alcohol is consumed, it should be consumed in moderation - up to one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men. That might be true in isolation, Gakidou said, but the picture changes when all risks are considered. Alcohol is linked to over 20 negative and potentially deadly conditions including cancers, stroke, heart disease, and of course accidents (vehicular or otherwise) that tend to happen when people are drinking. Additionally, certain studies may not take into account that some non-drinkers may avoid alcohol because they already have health issues.

Hawaii warnings dropped as tropical storm Lane weakens and leaves
Authorities are still responding to the storm Saturday, after it dropped over 40 inches of rain in some areas in recent days. And although places like Honolulu and Lihue did not get hit hard, other parts of Hawaii still saw severe impacts from Lane.

"Our findings are consistent with other recent research, which found clear and convincing correlations between drinking and premature death, cancer and cardiovascular problems", said Dr Emmanuela Gakidou, senior author of the study.

University of Cambridge epidemiologist Steven Bell co-authored a separate study published in April in The Lancet that found drinking is beneficial in lowering the risk for heart attack.

The risk was 7 percent higher in people who had two drinks a day, and 37 percent higher among people who had five drinks every day, according to the report. "[It] doesn't mean, if you drink on birthdays and Christmas you're going to die", said Keith Humphreys, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford University, who was not involved in the study.
