The facts we all should know

FACT #12

Did you know reducing population alcohol consumption would reduce liver disease mortality?

Europe has the highest levels of alcohol consumption per person, the highest prevalence of heavy episodic drinking, and the lowest rates of abstention from alcohol in the world. The evidence linking liver-related mortality and population-level alcohol consumption sends a crucial message for disease prevention: alcohol-related cirrhosis is a dose-related condition at the population level, and the most effectual and cost-effective means to reduce mortality rates from alcohol-related liver disease are interventions that reduce population-level alcohol consumption.
