According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), alcohol is responsible for 1 in 10 deaths in the US. The conclusion was derived after a study which involved analysis of all the accidents and illness caused by alcohol. The study also found that at least fifty alcohol related health condition would lead to death.

The study was conducted by Mandy Stahre, an epidemiologist at the Washington state Department of Health during her stint at the CDC, said, “Excessive drinking is associated with a lot more causes of death than what we tend to focus on. Alcohol intake plays a role in at least 54 different conditions linked to death. Binge drinking is associated with 51 percent of all deaths due to excessive drinking.”

Ms. Mandy and her team evaluated the Alcohol-Related Disease Impact application to figure out the number of deaths caused by alcohol between the years 2006 and 2010. The adults were aged between 20 and 64 years. The study also tried to calculate the number of years people lost due to excessive drinking.

The researchers found that 88,000 people lost their lives due to alcohol related causes, whether it is from a traffic accident or due to illness precipitated by consumption of alcohol. The life span of persons who drank excessively was also reduced by 30 years. The team also learned that 71% of the fatalities were men. Men are more likely to indulge in excessive drinking as compared to women.

According to Dr. James Garbutt , a professor of psychiatry and a research scientist at the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, alcohol is not benign and there should be moderation in its consumption.

The report also gave statewide results about the alcohol related deaths. It was 51 deaths per 100,000 persons in New Mexico while it was 19 deaths per 100,000 people in New Jersey.

    So what?

    This ‘study’ scarcely advanced the science of substance abuse any. We knew that alcohol was bad from a medical standpoint – as well as because of a number of other reasons – when we passed Prohibition. Fully 20% of the US population has NEVER been able to reliably handle alcohol responsibly. But Prohibition was an unmitigated disaster too.

    And can we stop saying things like ‘alcohol is responsible for x percent of deaths. That is ridiculous. Real epidemiologists don’t use such comments. They use things like YPPL or years of potential life lost. That is at least a meaningful expression. The other implies that, but for alcohol, all those people would have gone right on living. They wouldn’t have.
    A thousand years ago the lifetime mortality was 100%. It still is. It still will be 1000 years from now. Everybody dies. They may die FASTER binge drinking, but in the absence of alcohol they will still die.

        it doesnt say that anywhere in the report. And how would they know how many excessive alcohol consumers there are in America? On our planet we dont ascribe intelligence to feces, but apparently on yours you are a perfect A-hole.

        The CDC alcohol and public health website does give numbers. If a woman has more than one drink on any given day, she is a heavy drinker. If a man has more than 2 on any given day, he is a heavy drinker.

        5 or more drinks for a man and 4 or more for a woman constitutes binge drinking. 1 in 6 Americans will engage in binge drinking this month.

        The number of alcohol related deaths in study is derived by meta analysis. Basically, they used unrelated studies and some assumptions to derive the desired results. You could take the same studies, change the assumption on how they interrelate, and get different results.

    Number of deaths due to pot? Zero. Yet, Republicans, who want smaller government and less regulations, want to tell you what drugs you can put in your body. Mainly, they want you to put in the drugs that come from their friends, big Pharma.

    Homicides account for only 5.3 deaths per 100,000 US (CDC), so if the government really cared about interceding preventable deaths, this should be the largest national campaign since the Manhattan Project.

    I would, however, not recommend holding your breath.

      Perhaps they should do away with the alcohol all together and their won’t be any deaths, because marijuana alone has not caused one.

        I know for a fact that your assertion that marijuana never kills people is not true, marijuana can be fatal when people smoke and drive, just like alcohol. I’ve read enough accident reports to prove that one. Let’s not be delusional about drug and alcohol abuse, whether it’s one in ten our one in one hundred, alcohol abuse is a significant health issue. Colorado and Washington are finding marijuana can poses health problems too.

    Thank God for alcohol it helps decrease the surplus population – now they are about to legalize pot and it goes well with booze – makes it work faster.
