Moderate Alcohol Intake Helps Protect From Weight Gain

July 26, 2011: 12:05 PM EST
A review of studies into alcohol consumption and weight gain found contradictions in results of large cross-sectional studies and cohort studies, while findings from short-term experimental trials did not indicate a clear trend. Heavy consumption of alcohol may cause body weight gain, but light-to-moderate alcohol intake may actually help protect from weight gain, according to the review. Researchers chose 31 publications based on relevance and quality of design and study methods.
