Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 27, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- It is estimated that excessive alcohol consumption is the cause of around 79 thousand deaths in the United States annually (source: http://www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns/BingeDrinking/). According to the World Health Organization, 6.13 litres of pure alcohol is consumed per average person aged 15 years or older. On the other hand some recent studies demonstrate that moderate alcohol consumption reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, as well as has a positive impact on life expectancy.
Although the recommendations for moderate alcohol consumption are developed by the WHO and many national health organizations, few people are informed about and are actually observing these guidelines in their daily lives. Usually we drink beer, wine or spirits in a bar or buy it at the local grocery store in the available volumes instead of consuming "standard drinks" or grams of pure alcohol which form the basis of moderate drinking guidelines.
DrinkControl is your iPhone notebook where you quickly record the beverages taken at the time of drinking or the day after if you prefer so. DrinkControl automatically converts your take-in quantities, such as glasses, bottles or cans, into the units of alcohol and informs you when you have approached or exceeded the daily, weekly or monthly limit in regard to moderate drinking. In addition, DrinkControl shows an overview of average and total spending on alcohol which should serve as an extra motivation to limit alcohol consumption.
* Track the alcoholic beverages consumed and the corresponding costs quickly and easily;
* Compare your alcohol consumption to the moderate drinking guidelines of The World Health Organization or the health organizations of the US, the UK, Canada or Germany;
* Have an overview and edit the consumed beverages in the calendar;
* Browse statistical charts of your alcohol consumption and expenditures in different time periods.
