Alcohol issues are increasingly on the front burner. Politicians, advocacy groups and the media are turning up the heat even as a large and growing body of scientific research establishes the many health benefits of moderate drinking. These very issues - attacks by anti-alcohol activists and the facts about the health benefits of moderate drinking - have always been the focus of Alcohol Issues INSIGHTS. Here's a small sampling of the news and info you'll get:

In Alcohol Issues INSIGHTS, you'll find exclusive articles. Some detail the latest studies adding to the vast body of research showing benefits of moderate consumption. Others monitor the progress against alcohol abuse. Still others track the latest moves of the New temperance movement.

Public health advocates are keeping the heat on alcohol issues this election season.

After three straight years when the number of traffic deaths deemed alcohol-related (when a driver or non-occupant has a measurable blood alcohol content) had increased, the number of alcohol-related traffic fatalities (ARF) declined by 511, 2.9% in 2003, according to federal government figures. That was the best trend since 1997, when the number declined by over 1,000, 5.8%. What

New estimates of the prevalence of alcohol abuse/ dependence in the US once again cast doubt on the simplistic belief that rates of alcohol problems are necessarily linked to rates of per capita consumption. Acting under that principle, many public health officials advocate "environmental measures" like higher taxes aimed at reducing overall consumption, rather than targeting efforts to reduce specific problem drinking. In fact, consumption and abuse rates moved in opposite directions from 1992 to 2002 in the US. Per capita consumption of absolute alcohol declined by about 4% during this period, from 1.76 gallons to 1.69 gallons, based on shipments of beer, wine and spirits. Yet, the just-released National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions (NESARC) found prevalence of alcohol abuse and dependence combined among US adults rose from 7.4% 1991-92 to 8.5% over the decade. An increase in the prevalence of abuse more than offset the slight drop in the rate of dependence. As a result of these prevalence rates, the number of adult Americans who abused alcohol or were alcohol-dependent (the more serious condition, sometimes called "alcoholism") rose by 3.8 million to 17.6 million in the decade, NIAAA estimates. That increase may reflect attitude changes more…

A pair of new studies using the same measure of self-reported well-being concluded that drinkers consistently report better health than abstainers.
