Alcohol causes more deaths than AIDS, tuberculosis or violence

Revenue growth encourages greater consumption of alcoholic beverages, lately particularly in densely populated African and Asian countries, including India and South Africa, and drinking is a growing problem in many developed countries, the statement said UN agencies.

Nevertheless, the control policy of consuming excessive amounts of alcohol is almost non-existent, and the government gives it very low priority, though the consequences are numerous and serious - of causing accidents on the roads, through violence, various diseases, neglect, and frequent absenteeism.

Each year from diseases associated with alcoholism in the world dies around 2.5 million people, according to a WHO report entitled "Global Report on the relationship between alcohol and health. " "Hazard of alcohol is especially bad for the younger age groups, and excessive alcohol consumption is a leading risk factor for mortality in men aged 15 to 59 years. "


Every fifth person in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States die from the consequences of drinking, the highest rate in the world. Data on the growing resort to alcoholism and frequent drinking are coming from Brazil, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine.

WHO also reports that excessive alcohol consumption is associated with 60 kinds of diseases and injuries, such as cirrhosis of the liver, epilepsy, alcohol poisoning, car accidents, violence, and several types of cancer - including colorectal, breast, throat and liver. "Seven years ago we have not had solid proof of a causal relationship between drinking and breast cancer. Now we have it, " the president said the WHO's department of alcohol abuse, who participated in the preparation of reports, Poznyak Vladimir.

One of the most effective ways to reduce excessive alcohol consumption, especially among the young, is to increase the price, and should be followed and set age limits for buying and consuming alcoholic beverages, is, among other things, the WHO report.
