Alcohol consumption and risk for hypertension in middle-aged Japanese men.

​A surge in hypertension risk appears to be related with alcohol consumption in middle-aged men.

This study examined the role of alcohol in the development of hypertension in middle-aged men. Researchers followed the alcohol drinking habits of 1,310 Japanese male office workers between the ages of 30 to 59 years and monitored the blood pressure of all the subjects throughout the 10-year duration of the study.

Researchers observed that the higher the frequency and amounts of alcohol consumed, the greater the odds of developing hypertension. Data from this study suggest that alcohol consumption may be a contributing factor to the development of hypertension in middle-aged men.
