Drinking and Obesity

This IARD Health Review summarizes the evidence on the association between alcohol consumption and risk of weight gain or obesity.

IARD Health Reviews offer an overview of scientific literature on the relationship between alcohol consumption and health outcomes and provide the reader with a bibliography that refers to original peer-reviewed research on each topic. The Reviews attempt to present the balance of the available evidence. They do not necessarily reflect the views of IARD or its sponsoring companies.
