Specific effects of alcohol intake to the heart


DNT 200 – NUTRITION FOR HEALTH SCIENCES Project (Research Article Summary) Guidelines Find a current(within the last five years) research article (a scientific paper) on a nutrition topic of your choice from one of the following sources: If you want to have an alternate source considered, do not wait until the last minute to seek approval from the instructor. Your article should be a full text article (not an abstract) and at least 5 pages long. Submit your topic and source (to include journal name, volume, year, pages, etc.) through Blackboard (click on the ‘Project’ tab) no later than Monday 07/18/16. Read the article and prepare a written summary of at least 3 double spaced typewritten pages. Summaries are due on Monday 07/18/16 and should be submitted through Blackboard (click on the ‘Project’ tab). Your summary should include your opinion on the content or outcomes of your article. Summaries should be written in MLA format to include the work cited (which would only be one, your article).

ABSTRACT Background Glasgow, the largest city in Scotland, has high levels of deprivation and a poor-health profile compared with other parts of Europe, which cannot be fully explained by the high levels of deprivation. The ‘excess’ premature mortality in Glasgow is now largely attributable to deaths from alcohol, drugs, suicide and violence. Methods Alcohol-related mortality in Glasgow from 1980 to 2011 was examined relative to the equally deprived UK cities of Manchester and Liverpool with the aim of identifying differences across the cities, with respect to gender, age and birth cohort, that could help explain the ‘excess’ mortality in Glasgow. Results In the 1980s, alcohol-related mortality in Glasgow was three times higher than in Manchester and Liverpool. Alcohol-related mortality increased in all three cities over the subsequent three decades, but a sharp rise in deaths in the early 1990s was unique to Glasgow. The increase in numbers of deaths in Glasgow was greater than in Manchester and Liverpool, but there was little difference in the pattern of alcohol-related deaths, by sex or birth cohort that could explain the excess mortality in Glasgow. The recent modest decrease in alcohol-related mortality was largely experienced by all birth cohorts, with the notable exception of the younger cohort (born between 1970 and 1979): women in this cohort across all three cities experienced disproportionate increases in alcohol-related mortality. Conclusions It is imperative that this early warning sign in young women in the UK is acted on if deaths from alcohol are to reduce in the long term. INTRODUCTION Scotland has the highest working age mortality rate in western Europe;1 improvements in the nation’s health faltered in the 1950s2 when overall life expectancy in the country increased more slowly than in other comparable European countries. The excess poor health in Scotland is in part due to greater deprivation in the city, supporting the call to reduce material and social inequalities.3 However, the excess mortality in Scotland cannot be fully explained by either deprivation4 or the country’s postindustrial past.5 Indeed, in the past few decad
