I am putting this thread here because I am hoping this subject doesn’t get politicized.
Many of these stats come from the CDC:
There are 95,000 deaths per year due to alcohol, that is 261 deaths per day and 2.8 million years of potential life lost.
Per year, the US loses 250 billion dollars due to alcohol.
10,142 deaths due to drinking and driving
5,000 death of youth under the age of 21 died do to alcohol
50% of all sexual assaults involved alcohol
63% of all intimate partner assaults involved alcohol
45% of physical assaults overall involved alcohol
40% of murders involved alcohol
So my question is what to do about this. I am hoping that this can stay on point and not involve any other subjects or non sequiturs.
