    To determine whether increased intakes of fat and protein or particular drinking habits are associated with the development of alcoholic pancreatitis, a dietary study has been conducted.

There was no significant difference between the two groups regarding intake of nutrients, drinking habits or type of alcoholic beverage consumed.
