The research led by a public health researcher, Kathryn Ashton from the Public Health Wales NHS Trust in Cardiff, UK revealed that the different types of alcohols such as whiskey, vodka, rum, gin and many other spirits seem more likely to add aggression as compared to other alcohol beverages. The big international survey says there are also some sorts of alcohols that have ability to elicit other particular alcohols.
The findings gained from the research may help understand alcohol consuming behavior and informs interventions and strategies to promote modifications in a way of consuming alcoholic beverages, especially among heavier drinkers.
Studying the association between types of alcohol, emotions and weird behaviors, these spirits extract may prevent drinking escalation to depending levels and upgrade public health messages, say researchers.
The research is published online in the BMJ Open on 21st November.
A co-author of the study and Public Health Wales, Mark Bellis said in a statement that, “For centuries, the history of rum, gin, vodka, and other spirits have been laced with violence. This global study suggests even today consuming spirits is more likely to result in feelings of aggression than other drinks”
However, the research has a lot of restrictions, so it has a thorough study obtained from self-reported data. The Director of Preventive Cardiology at Mid America Heart Institute of the Saint Luke’s hospital in Kansas City, Dr. James O’Keefe said that, “This is what I’ve been telling people for years based on observational data. It seems to me that my patients who drink red wine in moderation tend to do better, and this really solid gold-standard kind of research confirms our intuitions about the beneficial effects of moderate alcohol intake.”
