Q: Those who never drink alcohol do this more often than those who are moderate drinkers. What is it?
A: Call in sick to work. For respiratory, digestive and mental health reasons.
Researchers investigating the “U-shaped” relationship between alcohol and absenteeism in the UK, France and Finland, found sickness rates were higher in people who drank heavily or not at all.
The study, from the researchers at the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health found, this effect was most significant in mental health. People who avoided alcohol completely were about 50 per cent more likely to take have a mental health-related absence.
