  1. Lifelong teetotallers, ex-drinkers and drinkers : Mortality and the incidence of major coronary heart disease events in middle-aged British men.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    To determine the risk of all cause mortality and the incidence of major coronary heart disease (CHD) events in lifelong teetotallers and in ex-drinkers compared with occasional and regular drinkers.

    Methods

    A prospective study of middle-aged men drawn at random from one general practice in each of 24 British towns.

    Five years after the screening of 7735 men aged 40-59 years, 7167 provided further information on postal questionnaire enabling separation of non-drinkers into lifelong teetotallers and ex-drinkers.

    Results

    During the follow-up period of 9.8 years after the postal questionnaire there were 929 deaths from all causes and 490 major CHD events.

    Ex-drinkers exhibited increased cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular mortality ; lifelong teetotallers showed the lowest cardiovascular mortality but a significantly increased non-cardiovascular mortality.

    After adjustment for confounding factors and pre-existing disease, the two non-drinking groups did not differ significantly in all cause mortality from occasional and regular drinkers (light, moderate or heavy) but lifelong teetotallers still showed a significant increase in non-cardiovascular mortality.

    Adjustment considerably attenuated the risk of both cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular mortality in the ex-drinkers. (...)
