Increase in Global Alcoholism Raises Global Disease Burden

Health Monitor

Adult-per-capita consumption of alcohol has increased from 5.9 litres to 6.5 litres between 1990 and 2017 and is forecasted to reach 7.6 ltires by 2030, according to report in The Lancet.
Lifetime abstinence decreased from 46% to 43% while current drinking increased from 45% to 47%. Proportion of current drinkers may rise to 50% in 2030 and those with lifetime abstinence declining to 40%.
Based on the data available the global goals for reducing the harmful use of alcohol are not likely to be attained. This means policy makers should try to implement known and effective methods to reduce alcohol exposure among people.
