A nation of boozers and bingers?

 

This paper from the WHO has figures about adult drinking in the UK and other European states.

What I found interesting was that it undercuts the idea that continental drinking culture is a less risky way of dealing with alcohol.

We should also think about whether out conception of ourselves as a heavy drinking nation is a healthy way to represent ourselves, particularly as it sets social norms for our children.
