Alcohol use and problem drinking in South Africa: findings from a national population-based survey. (2/143)

OBJECTIVE: This study formed part of the South African National HIV, Incidence, Behaviour and Communication (SABSSM) 2008 survey, which included questions assessing the extent of alcohol use and problem drinking among South Africans. METHOD: A multistage random population sample of 15 828 persons aged 15 or older (56.3% women) was included in the survey. Alcohol use was assessed using the Alcohol Use Identification Test (AUDIT). Tabulation of data for different age groups, geolocality, educational level, income, and population group produced the estimates and associated confidence intervals. The odds ratios for these variables in relation to hazardous or harmful drinking were also computed. RESULTS: Current alcohol use was reported by 41.5% of the men and 17.1% of women. White men (69.8%) were most likely and Indian/Asian women (15.2%) least likely to be current drinkers. Urban residents (33.4%) were more likely than rural dwellers (18.3%) to report current drinking. Risky or hazardous or harmful drinking was reported by 9%: 17% among men and 2.9% among women. In men, risky drinking was associated with: the 20-54 year age group; the Coloured population group; lower economic status; and lower education. Among women, risky drinking was associated with: urban residence; the Coloured population group; lower education; and higher income. CONCLUSION: An increase in current, binge drinking and hazardous or harmful drinking prevalence rates was observed from 2005 to 2008 in South Africa. Multilevel interventions are required to target high-risk drinkers and to create awareness in the general population of the problems associated with harmful drinking. Future prospective studies are needed to assess the impact of problem drinking.  (+info)

Teens and young adults who binge drink in college may be raising their risks of cardiovascular disease later in life, a U.S. researcher says. Shane Phillips of the University of Illinois at Chicago looked for early signs of heart disease by comparing 19 binge drinkers to 17 non-drinkers ages 18-25. Even though these individuals are young and healthy and dont have any other overt cardiovascular signs of disease, these data would suggest they may be on the road to developing problems, Phillips said in a statement. Phillips examined the ability of small blood vessels such as those in the arm to dilate, or widen. Reduction in dilating is a sign of an early tendency toward heart disease. Phillips found changes in the binge drinker group. The study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, found the binge drinkers had a reduction in the ability of the main artery of the upper arm to respond to stress-induced increased blood flow by widening, as compared to their non-drinking ...

A woman is considered binge drinking on her 6th unit or her 2nd glass of wine. Binge drinkers usually fall under the 16 to 24 year old age bracket. Most likely, college students and people who are fairly new in their career binge drink. It has been well documented over the years about Fraternity parties that go awry because members have been forced to quickly drink to excess as part of the hazing ritual. In recent years, college campuses have begun to close down Frat houses that have encouraged this type of partying. A comprensive 16 hour drug alcohol class is highly recommended.. There have been studies regarding racial factors to binge drinking as well. The race that is most likely to binge drink are Hispanics, followed by Caucasians. African Americans are somewhere in between while Asians are the least likely to binge drink. Science ...
Four years after high school, adolescents who were binge drinkers during their senior year were more likely than non-binge drinkers to drive while impaired, to ride with an impaired driver, to black out from alcohol, to extreme binge drink, and to engage in risky driving practices, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and other institutions.
New scientific research shows that the link between exposure of teens to alcohol consumption in movies and binge drinking is strong. This conclusion comes from a survey questioning 16.551 adolescents in Germany, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Scotland. The study also shows that the relationship between alcohol use in movies and adolescent binge drinking is the same in all six countries.. The striking thing to me is how consistent the results were across countries and cultures, study co-author Dr. James Sargent, a professor of pediatrics and community and family medicine at Dartmouth Medical School, told HealthDay. Whatever you want your alcohol to do for you - make you feel rich, funny, sophisticated - you can see that in the movies. That shapes how kids see alcohol and their decisions whether to binge drink.. The study was conducted in collaboration by the University of Oregon, the University of Hawaii Cancer Centre, Dartmouth Medical School, the Norris Cotton Cancer Centre ...

Theres no denying we are a nation of drinkers. But the question we sometimes forget to ask ourselves -- or perhaps dont want to ask -- is how much is enough?
One in three high school students reported drinking alcohol during the 30 days before a survey, and one in six reported binge drinking.
7 This effect was exacerbated by binge drinking.. Of men aged 18-25 years, 60% binge drink. (Binge drinking is defined as 5 alcoholic drinks for men [4 for women] in a row.) Binge drinking significantly increases the risk of injury and contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Women who binge drink at this age are at higher risk of becoming pregnant and potentially harming an unborn child. (Any amount of alcohol consumption during pregnancy is risky.). More than three quarters of all foster children in the United States are children of alcohol- or drug-dependent parents. From 60-70% of reported domestic violence incidents involve alcohol. Half of all violent crime is alcohol or drug related.. Overall, morbidity and mortality are related strongly to smoking, and people who drink heavily are less likely to quit smoking. Additionally, persons who begin smoking early are more likely to develop problems with alcohol.. With regard to pregnancy, fetal alcohol syndrome is the leading known cause of ...
Fellow hospitality vets Paige Farrell and Mike Haigis dreamed up Brad-a-Palooza as a way to raise Ingwells spirits - and perhaps a few bucks - as he shoulders the burden of attempting to vanquish the stage 3A lung cancer diagnosis that totally blindsided him this past winter. Were trying to structure it as an opportunity to raise some money and show our support, Farrell said of the mini-bar crawl. Liquid courage is scheduled to flow freely Friday from 6-10 p.m. at both 201 Bar and Union Pub (201 Massachusetts Ave. NE); a $50 contribution (suggested) will grant participants access to a partial open bar (rail liquor), light appetizers, live music, a photo booth, a silent auction and raffle. Per Farrell, those more comfortable donating less can still enjoy the food and entertainment as well as signature drink specials (just no open bar). All donations will go towards helping defray Ingwells out-of-pocket expenses for the ongoing medical treatment. Im really touched by it, Ingwell, who ...

Over the past decade, smoking prevalence has decreased among Alaskans; however, when looking at individuals with behavioral health conditions, the numbers tell a different story. While 22% of the general population currently smokes, individuals with serious mental illness and major depression smoke at a rate more than twice that, at 49% and 46% respectively. Similarly, rates of smoking among those who binge drink are twice that of those who do not binge drink. An estimated 700 deaths annually can be attributed to smoking-related diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disease.. ...

New estimates show that binge drinking* is a bigger problem than previously thought. More than 38 million US adults binge drink, about 4 times a month, and the largest number of drinks per binge is on average 8. This behavior greatly increases the chances of getting hurt or hurting others due to car crashes, violence, and suicide.
There is a Difference Between Binge Drinking, Light Drinking, and Heavy Drinking. When determining the amount of alcohol a teen consumes, they will be classified as light, heavy, or binge drinkers. Light drinkers consume 5 or fewer drinks in a 30-day span. Heavy drinkers consume more than 5 drinks on 5 days or more within a 30-day span. Binge drinkers consume 5 or more drinks on less than 4 occasions in 30 days. Heavy drinking and binge drinking has been on the decline in recent years, but still, more than 1 in 5 underage adolescents consume an alcoholic drink every month.. Teen drinking should never be overlooked - adolescents are a vital part of our community. With professional help, you or a loved one can get the help you need to combat teen alcoholism and addiction. You may find it helpful to write down your story and use it to inspire yourself and others to move forward.. ...
Researchers have studied the brain activity of young binge-drinking college students in Spain, and found distinctive changes in brain activity, which may indicate delayed brain development and be an early sign of brain damage.
The results in this report indicate that in 2010, binge drinking was common among U.S. adults, and persons who binge drank tended to do so frequently (average of four times per month) and with high intensity (average of eight drinks on occasion), placing themselves and others at a significantly greater risk for alcohol-attributable harms (2,3). Binge drinking prevalence and intensity were highest among persons aged 18-24 years and 25-34 years, but frequency was highest among binge drinkers aged ≥65 years. Those with household incomes ≥$75,000 had the highest binge drinking prevalence, but binge drinkers with household incomes ,$25,000 reported the highest frequency and intensity of binge drinking. In a number of states with a lower prevalence of binge drinking, those who binge drank did so with high intensity. The higher prevalence of binge drinking in 2010 (17.1%), compared with 2009 (15.2%) (10), likely resulted from inclusion of cellular telephone respondents in the 2010 developmental ...
Pregnant women report binge drinking more frequently than nonpregnant women: Among binge drinkers, pregnant women reported binge drinking 4.6 times in the past 30 days compared to nonpregnant women who reported binge drinking 3.1 times in the past 30 days. Additionally, the survey found that, among binge drinkers, pregnant women consumed more than nonpregnant women with 7.5 versus 6.0 drinks 3.. Drinking alcohol during pregnancy is associated with high health care costs: The United States spends an estimated $5.5 billion dollars in health care and related costs related to drinking during pregnancy every year 9.. An estimated 3.3 million women ages 15 to 44 years old are at risk for unintentionally exposing their unborn child to alcohol: Many women drink alcohol while they are sexually active and not using birth control to prevent pregnancy 8. Additionally, over half of the pregnancies in the United States are unintended: an unintended pregnancy is either unplanned or planned but not monitored so ...

Benoit Denizet-Lewis article on crackdown among university administrators on binge-drinking in fraternities, where residents are twice as likely as other students to binge drink; shares his own experience in fraternity while attending Northwestern University in mid 1990s; 11 national and international fraternities now require chapter houses to be alcohol-free, regardless of university policy; Northwestern University has expelled fraternities for alcohol and hazing violations, and any new fraternity there must be alcohol-free; other schools have banned fraternities altogether, saying system is beyond repair; sobering up of chapter houses has not been easy and backlash has been fierce, especially from alumni, and many that say they are dry are not; major factor in decision to go dry is fear of costly lawsuits, especially since National Association of Insurance Commissioners ranks fraternities as sixth-worst risk group for insurance companies; photos (L)
You can drink above the official recommended alcohol guidelines quite safely, a member of the Government's Health Committee admitted yesterday. Retired GP Richard Taylor said: 'Although I would still endorse the old Government limits, I would add the rider that if you step outside them within reason, it will not do you any harm.'
Strokes may cause increased preference for alcohol, researchers find. Getting drunk before your 15th birthday nearly doubles your risk of an early death, new research reveals. Those who get inebriated at a young age are 47 percent more likely to die prematurely, a study found.. Researchers believe early drinking may increase a persons risk of suffering a life-threatening alcohol abuse disorder in later life.. Lead author Dr Hui Hu from the University of Florida, United States, said: Early onset of drinking and drunkenness are associated with alcohol use disorders and therefore may play a role in elevated alcohol use disorder-related mortality rates.. Other experts add excessive alcohol-consumption at a young age can increase a persons risk-taking behavior and lead to mental health issues.. Young women who binge drink increase their risk of developing type 2 diabetes in later life, experts warned earlier this month.. Drinking heavily at least once a month raises womens chances of having ...
Holmes and his team are the same people who came up with a magic bullet in the form of a minimum unit price (MUP) model that they claimed would target problem drinkers without impacting everyone else. Many people were intrigued by the model including me so I went to the trouble of wading through the extensive analysis that was supposed to be the basis for MUP and was shocked to find that it was not only not supported by the literature but was at odds with many of the most relevant publications. The Sheffield team ploughed ahead regardless and were paid by two governments and the BBC for a model that is economically counterintuitive and contradicts much of the published evidence. Fortunately, I was not alone and many people came to understand that MUP would not target the people Holmes said it would and would be a regressive unpopular tax. Some persist in an irrational belief in MUP including Nicola Sturgeon and some of the members of the expert alcohol guideline groups who are still lobbying ...

Binge drinking is the consumption of a large quantity of alcohol over a short period of time. This is a habit that takes place on college campuses, during high school parties, at bars and other locations all over the world and in many cultures.. Its not just the adults who binge drink. Below is an excerpt from a recent article in the UKs Daily Mail newspaper;. One in five 15-year-olds drinks the equivalent of almost a bottle of wine a week and in some parts of the country, one in eight 12-year-olds is drinking this heavily. Binge drinking is also to blame for more than 4,300 teenage pregnancies, 11,500 expulsions and suspensions from school, and five and a half million lost days of schooling each year.. Drinking often becomes popular through peer pressure, it is made to look like fun and people think it will help them feel good. Some do it to relieve stress, although it usually creates more stress than it alleviates.. Most people dont think about the consequences of drinking except for the ...
Im a man in my early 40s. I grew up an athlete and all around good kid. I learned how to drink in my late teens within the binge drinking culture, and continued to binge drink from probably late 17 to early 40. I could rarely drink casually. I wanted to drink to feel good. I wanted to drink to get drunk. For years, I would binge maybe once or twice a week, as I was poor and still pretty physically fit. Not every day, but toward the end, I was drinking pretty much every day. I drank all through my time on SSRIs as well. I absolutely CRAVED alcohol when I was on Lexapro. Outside of alcohol, I smoked some pot a handful of times in my late teens and early 20s, but that was a short lived phase. Around 1999, (I was in my early to mid 20s), my Dr. put me on Paxil. I was suffering some depression following a relationship breakup. I cant recall much about it, other than I wasnt on it for long. I gained a bunch of weight and didnt think it was doing much for me. He had me quit cold turkey, and I ...

Teens who binge drink may be more likely to experience problems with attention as well as making decisions and carrying them out, a study shows.
I had a pretty tough childhood, my father was a violent alcoholic, in and out of prison, who beat my mum and brother, my mother was depressed and often absent and both parents tried multiple times to kill themselves.. My teenage years were problematic. I was often very unhappy and always felt as though I should have been the one in the firing line of my fathers anger instead of my mum and brother. I would self harm badly, starve myself, binge drink and eventually got into hard drugs and promiscuous sex. I had no self respect.. Im 21 and honestly I thought I would just grow out of that behavior, my mother always told me I would. But I really havent and now Im not sure what to do. I still hurt myself at times when it feels like I might explode because I feel something so much. Ill flip from suicidal to euphoric in hours, sometimes minutes. I will often be in a social situation and suddenly get hit by a wave of anxiety or grief and have to leave immediately or hide somewhere.. I am completely ...
Are you or have you ever been a college binge drinker? Welcome to alcoholism, a diagnosis your college self could qualify for under the changes proposed to the next edition of psychiatrys diagnostic manual, the DSM-5.
Increased time spent at home is a life stressor that impacts drinking, and the COVID-19 pandemic may have exacerbated this stress, said researcher Sitara Weerakoon, a PhD candidate from the University of Texas. Future research should consider the potential for depressive symptoms acting as a moderator [a factor that changes the impact] in the relation between the time spent under a shelter-in-place mandate and binge drinking, she added.. The study was published online Dec. 7 in the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse.. Additional research is needed to develop best treatment for people with substance use disorders who may be more susceptible to adverse health outcomes, Weerakoon said in a journal news release.. The researchers found that binge drinkers, on average, drank four drinks per occasion during the pandemic. They drank seven drinks maximum on one occasion. Non-binge drinkers drank two drinks both on average and at maximum. The investigators analyzed a variety of factors and ...

Atlanta - Drowsy driving is more prevalent among men, younger drivers, binge drinkers and those who do not always buckle up, according to a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Previous studies have suggested that drowsy driving plays a role in as many as 25 percent of fatal crashes every year. But limited information was available about the association between drowsy driving and other risk factors, CDC researchers said, prompting the creation of a wide-ranging project that included 92,102 respondents in the . . .
Evidence that brain edema and aquaporin-4 (AQP4) water channels have roles in experimental binge ethanol-induced neurodegeneration has stimulated interest in swelling/edema-linked neuroinflammatory pathways leading to oxidative stress. We report here that neurotoxic binge ethanol exposure produces comparable significant effects in vivo and in vitro on adult rat brain levels of AQP4 as well as neuroinflammation-linked enzymes: key phospholipase A2 (PLA2) family members and poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1). In adult male rats, repetitive ethanol intoxication (3 gavages/d for 4 d, ∼9 g/kg/d, achieving blood ethanol levels ∼375 mg/dl;

And another study proves the power of packaging. According to research published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, preschool children preferred Mcdonalds foods and drinks in the familiar golden arches packaging to the same foods and drinks in unbranded packaging. Study authors say this supports a move by Mcdonalds and ten other food and drink companies who announced new guidelines on marketing to children under age 12. Now heres one about binge drinking. Most adult binge drinkers choose beer as their beverage of choice. Thats according to a study by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention.

Chronic alcoholics who also binge drink (i.e., acute on chronic) are prone to an exacerbated liver injury but its mechanism is not understood. We therefore investigated the in vivo effects of chronic and binge ethanol ingestion and compared to chronic ethanol followed by three repeat binge ethanol on the liver of male C57/BL6 mice fed ethanol in liquid diet (4%) for four weeks followed by binge ethanol (intragastric administration, 3.5 g/kg body weight, three doses, 12h apart). Chronic followed by binge ethanol exacerbated fat accumulation, necrosis, decrease in hepatic SAM and SAM:SAH ratio, increase in adenosine levels, and elevated CYP2E1 levels. Histone H3 lysine acetylation (H3AcK9), dually modified phosphoacetylated histone H3 (H3AcK9/PS10), and phosphorylated H2AX increased after binge whereas phosphorylation of histone H3 ser 10 (H3S10) and H3 ser 28 (H3S28) increased after chronic ethanol-binge. Histone H3 lysine 4 and 9 dimethylation increased with a marked dimethylation in H3K9 in chronic
College students who binge drink also frequently post on social media while intoxicated, showing signs of social media addiction, according to a new study.
Alcohol is a huge problem on most college campuss. Twenty one may be the legal drinking age, but some how minors find a way to get a hold of alcohol. People as young as fifteen are able to get their hands on an alcoholic beverage. Alcohol is said to be the chosen drug among . College students have a tendency to drink more then the general population. It is said that college students spend approximately $4. 2 billion annually an alcohol. This money is spent on 430 gallons of alcoholic beverages, and 4 million cans of beer. The type of college, geographical location, the ethnic and gender makeup plays a role in the amount of drinking that occurs on campus. For example colleges with fraternities and sororities have higher statistics, this is because of their sponsored parties. They drink more often, which contributes to heavier drinking. Studies show that college students drink more when they are in a group, which speaks to peer influences. When it comes to drinking on campus there is no legal age ...
As if parents arent worried enough about what their teenagers are doing on Saturday nights, a new study reveals that binge drinking is common among high school seniors, with some knocking back 15 or more alcoholic drinks in a row.
For the third consecutive year, young people from different Pacific island states and territories have the opportunity to spread prevention and control messages for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) using different media, thanks to the Wake Up! Project, launched in 2017, with financial support from the Pacific Fund (France) and the Australian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), and implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC).
CHAPEL HILL, NC - Adolescents represent the majority of people who binge drink. This may come as a surprise to some, but recent surveys indicate that episodes of heavy alcohol drinking within the previous two weeks are reported by 12 percent of 8th graders, 22 percent of 10th graders, 28 percent of 12th grade seniors and 44 percent of college students.. Human adolescence, roughly between 12 to 20 years of age, marks a critical period for brain development. This is when the growth of the cortex, our gray matter, reaches a peak and is coupled with major rearrangements of neurons. Some guess that such brain remodeling during development help us adapt to lifes demands as we mature toward adulthood.. Its also a time when the brains developing neural circuits are more sensitive to disruption, said Fulton Crews, PhD, professor of pharmacology and director of the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. And we and others have shown ...
April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online. Binge drinking is a behavioral problem affecting approximately one out of every six US adults. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that binge drinking - a pattern of drinking that brings a persons blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to 0.08g/dL or higher - is the most common pattern of excessive alcohol use in the US. This leads one to ask how often a person can binge drink before they begin to damage their bodies.. According to a new study from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, once is enough. Their findings, published in PLOS ONE, reveal that even a single episode of binge drinking can have a significant negative impact on health. Binge drinking can result in bacteria leaking from the gut, which, in turn, increases the level of toxins in the blood. An increased level of these endotoxins drives the body to ramp up production of immune cells involved in fever, inflammation and tissue destruction.. We ...
The researchers, including Dr Andrea Waylen, studied data on more than 5,000 adolescents with an approximate age of 15 years from Bristols Children of the 90s study.. They found that adolescents with the highest exposure to alcohol use in films were 1.2 times more likely to have tried alcohol than those least exposed, and 1.7 times more likely to binge drink.. Those with the highest exposure were also 2.4 times more likely to drink weekly and twice as likely to have alcohol-related problems than those less exposed. The study authors suggest a review of film-rating categories and that alcohol ratings for all films may help reduce alcohol consumption in adolescents.. Between 1989 and 2008, 72 per cent of the most popular UK box office films depicted alcohol use, but only 6 per cent were classified as adult only.. Paper. Alcohol Use in Films and Adolescent Alcohol Use by Andrea Waylen, Sam Leary, Andrew Ness and James Sargent in Pediatrics ...
Talk about a sugar buzz: Your love of sweets could be tied to your drinking habits, finds new research from Indiana University.. Scientists looked at brain scans and found people who had a greater preference for extremely sweet tastes also drank more alcohol-though no one in the study was a heavy drinker. One possible explanation for the link: Sugar and booze both affect your brains opioid system (responsible for reward and addictive behaviors), as well as the feel-good neurotransmitter dopamine, says study coauthor David A. Kareken, Ph.D.. Your Skittles addiction probably isnt a significant risk factor for alcoholism on its own, Kareken says. The research also doesnt indicate that sugar causes the condition, or that cutting out the sweet stuff will turn you into a teetotaler. But sweet tooth or not, its still a good idea to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions alcohol guidelines: Stick to two drinks per day, and be wary if youre downing five or more in a sitting, which ...

Drinking heavily also increases your calorie intake, and it is frequently associated with obesity. This in turn leads to increased health risks. Adding 3 or 4 units per day to your usual diet would lead to an increase in weight of around 4lbs in four weeks.. Professor Ian Gilmore, president of the Royal College of Physicians, said: We know large numbers of people in this country binge drink. This should be a wake-up call to the millions of people whose lifestyle means they get drunk regularly.. Gilmore, who is also the chair of the Alcohol Health Alliance of key medical organisations and specialist alcohol charities, added: We are all already aware of the immediate impacts of binge drinking: accidents, violence, admission to hospital and unwanted pregnancies. But this opens up the spectre that drinkers who binge regularly may be at risk of long-term brain damage.. The study was undertaken by two experts in alcohols toxic effects on the brain: Professor Fulton Crews, director of the Bowles ...
Half a million young Spaniards between the ages of 14 and 18 have become muddy in the last month. More than 361,000 are minors. And the age of onset of flirting with this legal drug is reduced every year. Right now it is fixed in Spain at 13.8 years of age. In addition, 32.2% of teenagers binge drink. It is what is known as binge drinking. These absolutely brutal figures -according to the president of the Fundación de Ayuda a la Drogadicción (FAD), Ignacio Calderón- place alcohol as the preferred substance for young Spaniards.. They are copying increasingly and worryingly patterns of consumption in Anglo-Saxon countries,Beatriz Martín, the new director general of FAD, told ABC.

Note: I am placing the expressions binge and binge-drinking in inverted commas throughout this post - except in the sentence at the very end where I use the word binge correctly. Why? Simply because these expressions are now used by medical researchers, bureaucrats, and the media in a way that is totally different from both their original meanings and their ongoing popular connotations. On occasion in the past, Ive had the experience of complaining about this sneaky shift and have been told in response that, of course, concern about, say, teenage binge-drinking is related to serious alcohol abuse, not to levels of drinking that many of us consider moderate, reasonable, and civilised. But theres no of course about it ...
