Death from Alcohol on the increase!

A recent post in the SUN Herald states that alcohol related deaths are on the rise! Men seem to be the biggest victim group as so many drinkers are slowly killing themselves through alcohol!

The figures, which one expert described as “stark reading”, are certain to fuel further debate on how to tackle binge drinking.

The first National End of Life Care Intelligence Network report said the vast majority of the fatalities were people under 70, with more victims now in their 40s.

Obesity, hepatitis C and hepatitis B also contributed to the increase in total liver disease deaths between 2001 and 2009.

Other major causes of death – such as heart disease – have been declining in recent years.

In 2001, 9231 people died of liver disease, but by 2009 it was 11,575 people and 60 per cent were men.

More than one in 10 deaths of people in their 40s are from liver disease. Most of these deaths were alcohol-related. PA

sA striking 90 per cent of people who die from liver disease are under 70, the report revealed.

More than one in 10 deaths of people in their 40s are from liver disease.

When measured as “years of life lost”, liver disease is much more prominent, the report authors claimed.

Most of these deaths were from alcohol-related liver disease, which accounted for well over a third (37 per cent) of all liver disease deaths.

But the prevalence of deaths from alcohol-related liver disease varied greatly between males (41 per cent of liver disease deaths) and females (30 per cent of liver disease deaths).

Alcohol-related liver disease was also more common in the most deprived areas (44 per cent of liver disease deaths) than the least deprived areas (28 per cent of liver disease deaths).
