Warning over 'wind down wine'19th October 2009
Professor Ian Gilmore, the president of the Royal College of Physicians, has said women who use alcohol in the evening to relax could be putting their health at risk.
Professor Gilmore said: "Women in their role as mother or carer use alcohol to cope with exhaustion, anxiety, isolation and with stressful life events. Alcohol is a sedative and a relaxant but used on a regular basis can really put people at high risk. Women are storing up a health timebomb by drinking this regularly. My fear is that such women are at risk of developing liver disease or becoming alcohol-dependent."
