Alcohol problems might be influenced by neighborhood By Piriya Mahendra, medwireNews Reporter Disadvantaged groups living in poor neighborhoods are more likely to suffer alcohol complications than their wealthier counterparts, research shows. People living in low-income areas are generally more likely to avoid alcoholic beverages than those from more affluent areas, with the exception of Hispanic and African-American guys, report Katherine Karriker-Jaffe and co-workers in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.The existing study found women who took a health supplement containing DHA had been 10.6 and 11.1 times more likely to meet the current EU consensus recommendation for postpartum and pregnancy, respectively. Recommendations may be met by following the Health Canada recommendation to consume one to two portions per week of fish high in omega-3 essential fatty acids. The results of this also study suggests that dietary counseling and education about benefits of a supplement source of LCPUFA should expand beyond being pregnant as 44 percent % of the women in the cohort who reported taking a supplement during being pregnant were no longer taking these health supplements when breast feeding at 90 days postpartum.
