Young Adult Problem Drinkers Suffer More Health Problems Later In Life

HealthDay (11/2, Thompson) reports, “Young adults who are problem drinkers tend to suffer from more health problems later in life than non-drinkers, even if they conquered their alcoholism years earlier,” researchers found after reviewing “the long-term health records of over 600 US male veterans, about half of whom had a drinking problem in their youth.” The findings were published in the November issue of the Journal of Studies on Alcohol & Drugs.
