Presented by Dr Rudolph Schutte
What are alcohol’s true colours? Come along and explore ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ of the consumption of beer, wine and spirits!
There are mixed messages surrounding the use of alcohol. Some reports show the low-level alcohol consumption has protective effects on health while others indicate that no level of alcohol consumption is beneficial. This talk will show published and unpublished results from primary research involving over half a million people followed for ten years in order to get clarity on the health effects of different types of drinks, the amount of drinks that cause harm, and potential mechanisms at work.
