“According to SAMHSA, over 65.5 billion beers were consumed, 13.7 billion glasses of wine and 29.3 billion drinks of distilled spirits were consumed in the US in one year. Also: Americans consumed 6.3 billion gallons of beer last year. People are spending over $19.9 billion on liquor in America each year.” Source
88,0005 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die every single year from alcohol in the US… Globally an estimated 237 million men and 46 million women suffer from alcohol-use disorders. Source
With all these health issues, why isn’t there more information shared about this from mainstream avenues?
Interesting to note, the alcohol industry is worth an estimated $1,684 billion. Are they more worried about profit than our health? It really makes you wonder doesn’t it?
I have the very occasional glass of wine, but it’s rare, and it’s one glass. This is more referring to regular use, even if you don’t over do it.
