How are Nutrition and Alcohol linked and why is it important?

  • Sex differences in drinking habits have narrowed as women's drinking patterns have become more similar to men's.¬† However, women appear more sensitive to the negative health effects of alcohol.
  • Drinking alcohol at high levels has profound impacts on nutritional status and health - but do the links with diet and food choices work both ways?
    • Does better nutrition reduce desire or cravings for alcohol?
    • And could dietary and nutritional support help achieve recovery from excessive alcohol use?
  • Find out how dietary interventions could help women (and men) who want to reduce their drinking ‚Äď or achieve an alcohol-free lifestyle.
