Binge Drinking Among Women Is On The Rise, Study Says

BOSTON (CBS) – According to a study from Columbia University, binge drinking is on the rise among almost all adults. And while men on average drink more than women, the largest increase in binge drinking was among women. Binge drinking is consuming more than four alcoholic beverages at one time for women, five at one time for men. Researchers looked at more than 200,000 adults between 2006 and 2018. They found the largest increases in binge drinking among women ages 30-44 without children, doubling from 21-percent back in 2006 to 42-percent in 2018. And while binge drinking among moms rose almost as much, not any more than other groups suggesting that “mommy drinking” is not a special phenomenon. That said, doctors are encouraged to screen men and women, with or without kids, for unhealthy drinking habits.

This study aimed to analyze the aggregation of alcohol consumption, smoking, excess weight, and short sleep in Brazilian adolescents. This was a cross-sectional multicenter study conducted with teens participating in the Study of Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Adolescents (ERICA in Portuguese). The sample consisted of adolescents that answered the complete questionnaires on sleep, tobacco, and alcoholic beverages, in addition to having their weight and height measured. Aggregation was analyzed by comparing the observed and expected prevalence of risk factors in all possible groupings, with the respective 95% confidence int...

The formation of ester was confirmed by 1HNMR, FTIR and UV spectroscopy. The analytical usefulness of the obtained compound for quantification of ALA in food items was examined using HPLC-UV and GC–MS systems. It was found that it is possible to assay ALA...

All of these compounds were obtained from this plant for the first time. Chemotaxonomic studies indicated that F. cynanchoides has very close relationships with F. convolvulus and F. aubertii, and the genus Fallopia ...
