Abstract Assessment of alcohol consumption, physical activity, nicotine use, diet patterns, blood pressure, height, and weight was done for 179 males. Subjects from four different populations were sampled to assure that the entire range of alcohol consumption from abstainers to alcoholics was represented. A blood chemistry profile of 33 tests, which included hematological parameters, lipids, electrolytes and minerals, renal function tests, and indicators of liver function was done for each subject. Tests of liver function and mean corpuscular volume were most strongly related to alcohol consumption. In contrast, there were other blood tests which were significantly related to nicotine use, age, body fatness or physical activity, but not to alcohol intake. Blood pressure, red blood cell count, and triglycerides were significantly related to several factors including alcohol consumption. The effect of alcohol on the blood chemistry profile was distinguished from the effects of nicotine, diet, body fatness, age and physical activity.
