AA helps reduce cirrhosis of the liver

As the number of people attending Alcoholics Anonymous rises the rates of Cirrhosis declines.

Researchers examined the numbers AA membership and compared the rates of Cirrhosis of the liver in Ontario, Canada. They found that Cirrhosis declined as AA membership rose.

This applied to males and females from age 14 to over 65 years.

They concluded that, “. . . these findings are consistent with previous research demonstrating that per capita consumption is a strong determinant of cirrhosis mortality rates, and also that higher levels of AA membership can reduce cirrhosis mortality rates.”
