CONCLUSIONS: The intention and motivation to alcohol dependence treatment seem to be high at the beginning of the treatment, but recognition of the alcohol problems were low in highly dependent patients. Marital status was connected with an increased active component for readiness to change. The passive component (decreasing the ambivalence) was observed in the unmarried patients.

A new study confirms something we here at have been emphasizing for many years: Health news stories often overstate the evidence from a new study, inaccurately claiming that one thing causes another — as in drinking alcohol might help you live longer, facial exercises may keep your cheeks perky, and that diet soda might be a direct line to dementia. The researchers looked at the 50 “most-shared academic articles and media articles covering them” in 2015, according to data from the NewsWhip database. Seven of the 50 studies were randomi...

BOSTON (CBS) — Enjoying a cocktail from time to time may be good for your health. A new study finds that light drinkers have the lowest combined risk of developing cancer and dying prematurely. Light drinking is considered one to three drinks a week. Researchers looked at almost 100,000 adults and found that drinking less than 1 drink a day was associated with the lowest risk of death, even compared to those who don’t drink at all. The study can’t prove that light drinking prevents cancer or prolongs life. Perhaps light-drinkers are more likely to engage in other healthy behaviors than heavier drinkers. B...

It was 5:45 in the morning on a Monday after a full weekend of call. Thoroughly exhausted, I shuffled into the elevator and was met by the stench of stale clothing mixed with cigarette smoke. A painfully thin teenager exited, looking lost. I allowed him to wander out, grateful to be spared his odor. I was apathetic, overtaken by a weariness I vowed as a medical student never to have. Morning rounds passed without incident. All our CABG patients were more or less stable. I collected each patient’s overnight events, vital signs, laboratory values, daily chest X-ray, EKG, fluid balance and wound status. With my attendin...
