According to research from Hong Kong published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, quitting alcohol can improve the quality of life. It is also closely related to women’s health, especially to women’s mental health.
According to Dr. Michael Ni from the School of Public Health and The State Key Laboratory of Brain and Cognitive Science, University of Hong Kong (HKU), has overwhelmingly recommended that alcoholic beverages be taken lightly, as part of a healthy eating plan. This study was conducted by Dr. Xiaoxin Yao, Dr. Michael Ni, Dr. Herbert Pang, and their research partners at HKU.
The study involved 10,386 individuals from the FAMILY Cohort in Hong Kong who did not drink alcohol or drink alcohol moderately (14 drinks or less per week for men and 7 drinks or less per week for women) between 2009 and 2013.
Researchers compared their findings with data from the “National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions,” a survey of 31,079 individuals conducted by the United States National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
The average age of participants in the FAMILY Cohort is 49 years and 56% of them are female.
About 64% of men are non-alcoholic participants who are alcoholics and who refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages.
In addition, almost 88% of the women in the study were non-alcoholic. Men and women who did not drink alcohol throughout their lives had the highest levels of mental well-being at the beginning of the study (baseline).
For women who consumed alcohol moderately and stopped drinking, the practice of abstaining from alcohol was associated with changes in mental well-being in the study population of Chinese and Americans.
The results of this study are very clear after adjusting to sociodemographic characteristics, body mass index, smoking status, and other factors.
According to Dr. Thus, global alcohol consumption is expected to continue to grow unless effective strategies are used to reduce it.
According to him, the findings of their study suggest taking alcoholic beverages moderately, as it can improve the quality of life especially in relation to mental health.
Quit drinking alcohol is associated with a better chance of mental health. This is a beverage that is harmful to everyone regardless of gender and age especially for pregnant women.
This is because alcohol can be harmful to itself and content if they take it or take it by mistake.
International research groups have taken one of the major steps in finding biological changes in the brain that drive fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).
Recent studies using chaos theory to analyze brain signals published in the journal Chaos have shown a long-term impact on mental health.
Researchers have found that children exposed to this alcohol during the uterus show altered brain connections, consistent with impaired cognitive performance.
Their findings were obtained by measuring the response of a brain imaging technique called magnetoencephalography (MEG) and then analyzing it with a tool developed using chaos theory.
This is one of the pieces of evidence that affects the mental health of children.
According to a 2017 study, it is found that consumption of per capita beverages in Malaysia is among the lowest in Asia, at 1.7 liters per capita per year, not significantly different from Singapore (2.9) and Indonesia (0.6).
However, current trends and forecasts show an increase in global alcohol consumption per capita over the next 10 years, especially in Southeast Asia and the Pacific and American Territories.
Without the education and awareness of the dangers of alcohol abuse, it would also see an increase in the effects of unwanted abuse.
In other words, more creative and effective steps need to be taken to save more lives and provide a brighter and healthier future for future generations.
