Health & Dietary Information

The potential impact of alcohol on health and diet has been studied extensively over the years.  Some areas of this research have amassed decades of studies that inform our understanding of the possible health and diet outcomes that may be associated with beverage alcohol consumption. Information on some of these outcomes can be explored through the DrinkInfo Alcohol & Health section. 

The U.S. government also regularly evaluates studies and provides guidance on alcohol use in the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.  More information on alcohol and dietary considerations can be explored in the DrinkInfo Dietary Information section. Alcohol consumption can affect every individual differently, so all legal age adults who choose to drink should discuss their consumption practices with their health providers.
