NIHSeniorHealth site offers information about older adults and alcohol use – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. Aging lowers the body’s tolerance for alcohol, and older adults can develop problems with alcohol even though their drinking habits don’t change. To help older adults learn about the effect alcohol may have, the NIHSeniorHealth website has a new topic: Alcohol Use and Older Adults. Dr. Mark Willenbring represents the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse, and Alcoholism.
Willenbring: The website has essential information for older adults about alcohol and aging. The website is for people who are not dependent but who have some concern about drinking and what might be safe to drink.
Narrator: For details, visit www.NIHSeniorHealth.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
