ALCOHOL CONSUMPTION VS DEATHS

Leading the world in Alcohol related deaths is embarrassing. It strikes at the "heart and soul" of a country's reputation, but in order to have meaningful international standards everyone must play by the same rules. If Alcohol is a disease of the body then where does the chain of abuse begin if not with consumption?

We believe the WHO needs to insist on more accurate reporting of alcohol related deaths. See the disparity in the maps below and use the scrolling legend to enhance your perspective. Liters Per Capita published April 2011.
