Problem drinking is more pervasive and less frequently treated than previously thought, thanks to an updated definition of what constitutes “alcohol use disorder.”

A study published on June 3 in the journal JAMA Psychiatry surveyed U.S. adults 18 and older on their alcohol consumption habits between 2012 and 2013. Results were analyzed using the definition of alcohol use disorder in the latest edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, which was published in 2013.

While older editions divided alcohol use disorder into two categories, alcohol abuse and alcohol dependence, the new definition eliminated categories. Instead, it measures alcohol use disorder using a spectrum of abuse criteria ranging from mild to severe.

Ask Healthy Living: Why Do I Look So Terrible After A Night Of Bad Sleep?

Why does my face look so terrible when I don’t sleep enough?

There’s a million reasons to get a good night’s rest, but one of them is the simple fact that people tend to look terrible when they’re exhausted.

In fact, a recently published study in the journal Sleep showed that eyes get more swollen and red, eyelids get droopier and skin gets more wrinkled when people skimp on shuteye. Meanwhile, another study showed that getting eight hours of sleep makes faces appear more attractive and healthier, compared with the faces of people who stay up all night.

But why do the eyes and skin on our face seem so affected by sleep (or lack thereof)?

‘Year Of No Sugar’: The Schaub Family Went Sugar Free For An Entire Year

Inspired by research and writings by prolific food-industry researchers like professor Robert Lustig, M.D., and journalist Michael Moss, Eve Schaub decided to try an experiment. She, along with her husband and daughters Greta and Ilsa, spent all of 2011 eating no added sugar.

They combed packaged foods for other names for sugar, including high fructose corn syrup, crystalline fructose, maple syrup, honey, molasses, evaporated cane juice, as well as artificial sweeteners. They started preparing more foods at home. Each family member was allowed one regular exception that contained a small amount of sugar — Eve opted for a glass of red wine — and once a month, the family would have an agreed-upon dessert.

We recently caught up with Eve to chat about the experience, as well as the upcoming memoir of that sugar-free year, Year of No Sugar, available April 8.

Perhaps one of the most persistent struggles when dealing with anxiety is what people get wrong about the disorder.

According to Joseph Bienvenu, an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins University, there are many fallacies when it comes to anxiety disorders, and that can make dealing with it more difficult. These misconceptions are a common reality for those who either have the condition, know someone who is battling it or think they may be on the brink of a diagnosis.

A California mother’s instinct may have saved her newborn baby’s life.

When little Hope Juarez was born in Orange Country, Calif., last month, it was immediately clear that something was wrong. Hope was born as white as a ghost, and doctors realized that the baby had almost no blood in her body.

“She was crying and they brought her over to us and she was really pale,” Hope’s father, Josh Juarez, told local station ABC7. “I knew that something was really wrong when they started pricking at her feet trying to get blood to come out and there was no blood coming out.”

This Will Make You Never, Ever Want To Put A Lemon Wedge In Your Water Again

How germy are those lemon wedges we plop into our water glasses at restaurants?

A slice of lemon can spruce up plain-old water, but you might be drinking more than you bargained for. Turns out, those seemingly innocuous water glass garnishes (see also: iced tea and diet soda) could be serving up a host of unappetizing organisms.

In recent times, DEPRESSION has been the major cause of suicide. ANGER has led to premature death, LOW SELF ESTEEM has led to suicide because they do not see themselves as being able to carry on with life and feel others are better than they are. I have taken it upon myself to listen and write to the public and victims of these. If distance cannot make me listen and interact with you physically, then I hope my message would reach and touch your heart knowing that you are not in this alone and you can come out of it. Also, mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle, peace of mind, better communication will have a great impact on your journey through life.
