article imageCanadians consume 50% more alcohol than other countries

By Richard Mccallum     Mar 5, 2013 in Health
Toronto - A recent report from Canada's Center for Addiction and Mental Health has found that Canadians are drinking more alcohol that any other country surveyed.
The good news is that all those beer commercials they run on Hockey Night In Canada are working.
The bad news is that while the rest of the planet are starting to refrain from tippling Canadians are making up for the shortfall by consuming 50% more per capita than the rest of the globe.
This month the CMAH published a story in the monthly journal Addiction that the global trends of adults is to use less alcohol as a stimulant.
The same study found that alcohol is the third leading cause of injury and disease.
"Alcohol consumption has been found to cause more than 200 different diseases and injuries. Those include not only well known outcomes of drinking such as liver cirrhosis or traffic accidents but also special types of cancer such as female breast cancer.", said Kevin Shield who was one of the authors of the report.
