Reckless drinkers have worse health care routine


A recent study has found that people who drink more alcohol are prone to be careless about how they live their lives. The study was conducted by a team of researchers at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research. According to, the researchers found that people who indulged in frequent bingedrinking in large quantities had more erratic health routines than their counterparts who did not drink much alcohol. Also, these reckless drinkers’ routine for medical checkup was far from regular.

As per , the study which was published in a journal called Addiction Research & Theory brought to light that people who consumed high amounts of alcohol were at a risk of affecting their health in an adverse manner.

“The main finding here is that risky drinkers also engage in other behaviors–such as relieving stress with alcohol and cigarettes, not wearing seatbelts, unhealthy eating and not regularly seeing their doctors–that put their health at risk,” explained the lead author of the study Carla Green who is also a researcher at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research. The research also brought to light that consumption of moderate amount of alcohol everyday results in better health than people who drink in small amount or who abstain from alcohol all their lives.

Celebrities who have battled alcohol addictions include Charlie Sheen, Ben Affleck, Joaquin Phoenix and David Hasselhoff.
