The truth is most people don’t understand the guidelines for moderate alcohol consumption. DrinkControl is a mobile app for the iPhone that allows easy-to-use tracking of alcoholic beverages, prices and alcohol calories. DrinkControl lets you compare your habitual drinking trends with the moderate drinking guidelines from leading international health organizations.
According to the World Health Organization 6.13 liters of pure alcohol is consumed yearly by the average person aged fifteen or older. It is estimated that excessive alcohol consumption is the cause of around 88,000 deaths in the United States alone each year. Binge drinking has strong personal and financial consequences, as well as to someone’s safety.
Although the guidelines recommending moderate alcohol consumption are developed by the WHO and other national health organizations, people are not often informed about them nor do they observe them in their daily lives. Instead of considering our consumption in standard drinks or grams of pure alcohol, the basis of moderate drinking guidelines, we simply buy our beer, wine and spirits in their available containers without giving them a second thought.
DrinkControl helps you become more self-aware and accountable by providing options for:
✔ Tracking alcohol consumed and corresponding costs quickly and easily;
✔ Comparing your alcohol use with the moderate drinking guidelines from health organizations;
✔ Obtaining an overview and management of consumed drinks on a calendar;
✔ Getting charts and statistics of your alcohol consumption, related expenses and alcohol calories;
Tracking your alcohol consumption details can help you observe and understand your habits and, we believe, empower your health-improvement goals.
