When you reach for a carton of milk at the grocery store, you probably check the “sell by” or “best by” date—those handy labels that help you determine how fresh the product may be. But sometimes those labels can become confusing, because there’s often no explicitly stated expiration date to tell you when your product should be tossed.

For years Walmart Inc. and large restaurant chains like McDonald’s Corp. enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship. The retailer delivered a steady stream of diners, and the eateries provided rental profits and a reason for shoppers to stick around stores.

Those bonds have frayed as more shopping goes online and fast-food restaurants depend more on drive-through windows for sales, a feature Walmart locations don’t have. The pandemic has made indoor dining unappealing—or prohibited—for many shoppers, accelerating the split.

Now, a new study looks at women’s drinking and COVID-related anxiety to explain why, if you’ve picked up a boozing habit during lockdown, it may be time to get that pattern in check.

The research, published in the Journal of Gynecology and Women’s Health, cites the recent global uptick in drinking habits among women due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the stresses it induced, such as financial worries, juggling childcare, and so much more. It’s one of the
