Abstract
Objective: to describe the trends of self-reported past consumption of alcoholic beverages and ethanol intake from 1950. to 1995 within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC). Design: Data-on consumption of beer/cider, wine and liqueur/spirits were obtained age 20, 30 and 40 years to calculate average consumption and retrospectively at ethanol intake for the time periods 1950-1975 (at age 20), 1960-1985 (at age 30) and 1970-1995 (at age 40). Regression analysis was conducted with-the time period data to assess trends in past alcoholic beverage consumption and ethanol intake with time. Setting: The EPIC project. Subjects: In total, 392 064 EPIC participants (275 249 women and 116 815 men) from 21 study... (More)

Subjects: In total, 392 064 EPIC participants (275 249 women and 116 815 men) from 21 study centres in eight European countries. Results: Generally, increases in beer/cider consumption were observed for-most EPIC centres for 1950-1975, 1960-1985 and 1970-1995. Trends in wine consumption differed according to geographical location: downward trends with time were observed for men in southern European EPIC centres, upward trends for those in middle/northern European study centres. For women, similar but less pronounced trends were observed. Because wine consumption was the major contributor to ethanol intake for both men and women in most study. centres,time trends for ethanol intake showed a similar geographical pattern to that of wine consumption. Conclusion: The different trends, in alcoholic beverage consumption and ethanol intake suggest that information depicting lifetime history of ethanol intake should be and chronic diseases, included in analyses of the relationship between ethanol, particularly in multi-centre studies such as EPIC.
