While the findings are interesting – that only 2 of the 57 drinks reduced the amount of time it took to metabolise acetaldehyde – this is only one aspect of the negative effects of alcohol, and occurred in di...

Are the middle classes in denial about alcohol use?
Conclusion Overall, this research provides some early findings of so-called ‘white collar’ workers' views of drinking behaviours in the UK. Although the study was very small, with only 49 volunteers' views analysed, it is useful in determining emerging themes, and the researchers do state that there was relative consistency across the five groups. The researchers also note that ‘strong personalities’ within the group may have influenced how the other participants responded. Research among larger groups of white collar workers is needed to draw firmer conclusions about the drinking culture in the U...
