You looking at me?

We’ve looked before at the idea of ourselves being a heavy drinking nation and whether that holds up as well as we think it could.  And I remember some public debate about whether it is our conception of violence and alcohol going together that makes us more susceptible to violent altercations when we’re in drink.

Whatever.

What the graph to the right shows me, quite graphically, is why those working in the NHS and therefore our colleagues in public health see alcohol as a problem that needs to be tackled.

Data from here.
