For Your Information: Alcohol Accounts For More Deaths Worldwide Than Violence, TB, Or Even AIDS!!

- By Bossip Staff

While you’re poppin’ bottles in the club, and throwing back shots of Patron, consider what alcohol may be doing to your body.

GENEVA — Alcohol causes nearly 4 percent of deaths worldwide, more than AIDS, tuberculosis or violence, the World Health Organization warned on Friday.

Rising incomes have triggered more drinking in heavily populated countries in Africa and Asia, including India and South Africa, and binge drinking is a problem in many developed countries, the United Nations agency said.

Yet alcohol control policies are weak and remain a low priority for most governments despite drinking’s heavy toll on society from road accidents, violence, disease, child neglect and job absenteeism, it said.

Approximately 2.5 million people die each year from alcohol related causes, the WHO said in its “Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health.”

“The harmful use of alcohol is especially fatal for younger age groups and alcohol is the world’s leading risk factor for death among males aged 15-59,” the report found.

In Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), every fifth death is due to harmful drinking, the highest rate.

All these different ways that alcohol can kill you and the government still won’t legalize marijuana. Whatever…

    You wont know how many deaths marijuana will contribute to until it becomes legal. Anyone under the influence of any drug is operating in a diminished capacity and by using increases their probability of addiction. Unfortunately we don’t need more drugs legal for nothing good other than a reduction of criminal drug related charges/convictions will come from it.
