Featured News: Need for Multiple Naloxone Doses on the Rise
The percentage of people treated for a drug overdose who need more than one dose of the opioid overdose antidote naloxone is on the rise, a new study suggests.
A study of 35,000 20- to 70-year-olds in the Netherlands found that moderate alcohol consumption — in conjunction with a variety of healthy lifestyle choices — was associated with a 40-percent reduction in risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Reuters reported May 26 that the protective effect held as long as study subjects also met at least three of four healthy-lifestyle conditions: obesity prevention, adequate exercise, not smoking, and a balanced diet. The moderate drinkers were less likely to develop Type 2 diabetes compared to abstainers who adopted similar healthy behaviors.
The researchers defined moderate drinking as consuming one daily drink for women and up to two per day for men.
