Solitary drinking among youth is influenced by social discomfort, especially for girls

Research Society on Alcoholism

Although drinking alone does not necessarily mean that someone has a drinking problem, solitary drinking by youth is alarming for several reasons: it may lead to heavier drinking, numerous psychosocial problems, and long-term alcohol problems. Findings from two large samples of underage drinkers show that solitary drinking can be influenced by social discomfort, especially among underage female drinkers. These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis, June 22-26, 2019.

Eating More Vitamin K Found to Help, Not Harm, Patients on Warfarin

American Society for Nutrition (ASN)

When prescribed the anticoagulant drug warfarin, many patients are told to limit foods rich in vitamin K, such as green vegetables.
