Alcohol causes significant harm to those other than the drinker

eurekalert.org
  • Every year, 1 in 5 adult Americans are harmed (physically, mentally, or property-wise) because of other peoples’ alcohol consumption.
  • Women risk harm from heavy drinkers in their household, men risk harm from drinkers outside of their family.
  • People younger than 25 have a higher risk of harm than other age groups.
  • These findings support the need for control policies, like increased taxation and prices, as a way to reduce alcohol’s harm to people other than the drinker.
  • Researchers used data from 8,750 people over the age of 18, collected from two telephone surveys conducted in 2015.
