Alcohol: a Deadly Killer for Anyone

Alcohol: a Deadly Killer for Anyone

A new study, published by the University of Washington, School of Medicine states that there is no safe level of drinking alcohol. In 2016, there were nearly 3 million deaths globally that were attributed to alcoholism and alcohol abuse. 12% of these deaths were males, between the ages of 15 to 49 years old.


Death risks that are associated with alcoholism and heavy alcoholic drinking are huge. The findings are consistent with other research that been conducted recently. The research conducted in 2016 surrounding the dangers and consequences of drinking show clear and convincing correlations between drinking and premature death, heart disease, cancer and other cardiovascular related problems. The studies done were not specifically for wine, beer or liquor. The conclusions were derived from studies done surrounding “alcoholic abuse,” concluding that those who chose to drink ZERO alcohol, minimize the overall risk of health loss.

Alcoholic “average consumption,” refers to a standard drink- which is 10 grams of pure alcohol, consumed daily by an adult man or woman. This would be the equivalent of a small glass of red wine at 13% volume, or a can or bottle of beer or one shot of liquor 40% alcohol.

The Study, which is part of the annual Global burden of Disease, assesses alcohol-related health outcomes and patterns between 1990 and 2016 for countries all over the world. The study done showed the following links to these diseases and injuries:

  • Cancers
  • Cardiovascular diseases (heart disease and failure)
  • Non Communicable diseases: cirrhosis of the liver, diabetes, epilepsy, pancreatitis and alcohol use disorders
  • Communicable diseases: lower respiratory infections and TB
  • Injuries which are Intentional: interpersonal violence or self-harm
  • Unintentional Injuries: exposure to mechanical forces, poisonings, fire, heat and hot substances, drowning and other unintentional injuries
  • Transportation related injuries such as car wrecks, DUII


There is a profound relationship between health and alcohol that has never been this clear in the past. Drinking causes substantial health depletion, in many cases, it’s worldwide. Russia had the second to highest death rate related to alcohol and Kuwait had the lowest rate.

The countries with the highest current drinkers done in a study in 2016 were Males of all ages in Denmark at 97.1% current drinkers. Pakistan had the lowest percentage of male drinkers with 0.9% consumption.

In 2016, 3 million deaths were attributed to alcohol consumption. Alcohol creates massive health risks to adults and children when drinking any amount.

Alcohol is one of the biggest causes of death in the world today. It is urgently important that the public gets educated on alcohol the risks associated with any amount of consumption. For so many, alcohol is considered the original gateway drug to more extensive drug abuse.

Prevention of alcoholic deaths are preventable- scientists say to just not drink it.  If you or someone you know has a problem with drinking alcohol, please call Miracle Recovery Center today to speak with an intake counselor.
