Heavy Drinking May Fuel Men’s Suicide Risk During Economic Downturns

HealthDay (5/26, Preidt) reports, “Heavy drinking may fuel the risk of suicide among men when the economy is sinking,” research published in the July issue of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research suggests. Researchers arrived at the study’s conclusions after analyzing “data from 16 states to compare alcohol use between suicide victims and the general population in 2005-2007, during the 2008-2009 recession, and again in 2010-2011.”
