Alcohol-related harm to others in England: a cross-sectional analysis of national survey data

This study, using data collected through the Alcohol Toolkit Survey, shows alcohol related harm to others affects 20.1% of England's population. Even apparently minor harms, e.g. being kept awake, can have a negative impact on health. Aggressive harms are clearly of concern.

Abstract Co-cultivation of brewers' yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) with Cyberlindnera fabianii makes it possible to steer aroma and alcohol levels by changing the inoculation ratio of the two yeasts. A dynamic model was developed based on mono-culture performance of brewers' yeast and C. fabianii in controlled bioreactors with aerated wort as medium, describing growth rate, carbohydrate utilization, ethanol production, maintenance, oxygen consumption and ergosterol biosynthesis/use for cell membrane synthesis (the last one only for brewers' yeast). The parameters were estimated by fitting models to experimental ...

dre H Abstract Nitrogen is an essential nutrient for yeast during alcoholic fermentation. Nitrogen is involved in the biosynthesis of protein, amino acids, nucleotides, and other metabolites, including volatile compounds. However, recent studies have called several mechanisms that regulate its role in biosynthesis into question. An initial focus on S. cerevisiae has highlighted that the concept of "preferred" versus "non-preferred" nitrogen sources is extremely variable and strain-dependent. Then, the direct involvement of amino acids consumed in the formation of proteins and volatile compounds...

Abstract The selection of Saccharomyces yeast which is able to produce high amounts of relevant aroma components from sorghum wort has been scarcely explored. Furthermore, generating sorghum beer with low levels of vicinal diketones (VDKs) is a permanent concern of brewers because of the wort's low amino acid content. To address these challenges, a performant Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast was selected based on the higher alcohols and esters it synthesizes, and conditions influencing the young beer's VDK content were studied. Our results confirm that the low amino acid content limits aromagenesis by industrial ale...

Alright SDN I want to hear your thoughts. I am recent graduate at an above average state school. During my freshman year I kept getting in trouble with my school in the dorms. I was caught twice in the dorms with alcohol and received an MIP. I was also caught and arrested with a non-felony fake ID charge the same year. I think I was honestly one step away from getting suspended for a semester but luckily got my act together. All charges were eventually dropped and expunged but still remain...

Depression and Addiction Throughout life, everyone has bad days and low moments. We all get into a “funk” or have times when we feel the blues. While this is a normal part of life and reaction to stress or traumatic events, depression is an entirely different thing. According to the American Psychiatry Associaton, Depression is a common and serious medical illness that negatively affects how you feel, the way you think and how you act. The condition causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities once enjoyed. It can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems and can decrease a pers...

People with bipolar disorder who smoke tobacco are more likely to have recurrent suicide attempts, according to astudy in theJournal of Affective Disorders. This risk of recurrent suicide attempts was higher among smokers who also had alcohol use disorder or cannabis use disorder.The study by Romain Icick, M.D., of Paris Diderot University and colleagues included 916 patients who had bipolar I or II according toDSM-IVcriteria and were from France or Norway. Of these participants, 338 (37%) reported at least one suicide attempt, and 173 reported recurrent suicide attempts —defined by authors as two or more suicide att...

(CNN) — Your social media could reveal a lot more about you than you think. Say, for example, whether you have a medical condition. In a new study, researchers were able to predict 21 types of medical conditions — ranging from pregnancy to skin disorders — by analyzing people’s Facebook profiles. Facebook status updates were “particularly effective at predicting diabetes and mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and psychoses,” the study found. The study will be published June 19 in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published since 2006 “Peop...
