  1. Alcohol and J-shaped curves.

    Article, Communication - En anglais

    State-of-the-Art Conference : Risks and Protective Effects of Alcohol on the Individual. .

    Many studies report J-or U-shaped curves in describing the association between level of alcohol consumption and mortality.

    J-shaped curves may, however, be the result of complex associations between psychosocial and other confounding factors and health, rather than a simple causal association derived from the biological effects of alcohol.

    In this review, nine methodological issues are discussed : age and sex, causes of death, characteristics of abstainers, drinking pattern, smoking, diet, physical activity, social support and personality, and psychopathology.
