ABSTRACT
The article reports on a research study aimed to determine the relation between alcohol intake and mortality in men and women. An updated meta-analysis of 34 prospective studies were conducted, which reported all-cause mortality in adults by level of alcohol intake and separately for men and women. It is found that in both men and women, high alcohol intake increases mortality compared with nondrinkers, whereas moderate alcohol intake is associated with decreased mortality.
