Experts of the UN recognized any amounts of alcohol as hazardous to health - RIA Novosti, 8/24/2018

MOSCOW, 24 Aug – RIA Novosti. Even the smallest portions of alcohol cause serious damage to health and considerably increase probability of premature death from heart troubles, cancer and accidents. In total, alcohol claims the lives of three million inhabitants of the planet and 82 thousand Russians every year, experts of the UN write in article in the Lancet.© magazine RIA Novosti / Alexey Kudenko to Pass into an image bank Even small doses of alcohol atrofirut a brain, scientists "have found out We have collected the most extensive data set devoted to this problem. Now we can say very clearly that negative effects of alcohol disappear only if the quantity of drunk tends to zero. The myth that one-two portions of alcohol are useful to health is discredited" — Emmanuela Gakidou from the university of Washington (USA) has said. In the last decade in the scientific press there were several tens of researches which authors declared existence of communication between alcohol intake in any form and development of cancer in a number of bodies. For example, in 2010 scientists have shown that the use of a large number of beer can accelerate development of cancer of intestines, in 2011 and 2013 – have opened communication between alcohol and breast cancer. Other observations have shown that the combination of tobacco and alcohol aggravates cancerogenic effect of the last. On the other hand, as Gakidou notes, many scientists wrote and about the return – the people drinking wine or beer in small amounts on average lived longer not only, than inveterate alcoholics, but also absolute nondrinkers. Similar statements and publications have caused a lot of a controversy among physicians as they couldn't find an unambiguous explanation for this phenomenon. © to Drink Depositphotos/samotrebizan moderately or not to drink absolutely? Scientists have dispersed in a mneniyakhgakida and its colleagues working under the auspices of the UN have carried out the most mass and large-scale inspection of these statements so far, having collected statistics on abuse of alcohol in 195 countries of the world for the last quarter of the century. In this project as scientists note, they have united basic data nearly 1,5 thousand scientific works which authors studied influence of alcohol on health of certain people and on residents of the different countries and regions. Their comparison has allowed experts of the UN to count the total number of the drinking people in the world and to understand how many lives are claimed by "a green serpent". As show these calculations, every fourth inhabitant of Earth took or takes alcohol – their total number is about two billion. What is interesting, the number of the drinking men only slightly exceeds the number of women, and makes 63%. Most of all residents of the countries of Europe drink – for example, Denmark almost all men (97%) and women (95%) admitted that they tasted alcohol, and Norway, Germany, Poland and France almost don't concede to them. Least of all drink, the expected image, in the Muslim countries of the Middle East including in Syria.© RIA Novosti / Evgeny Odinokov to Pass into an image bank Smoking and alcohol accelerate aging of the person, declare uchenyekazhdy year Earth
