ALCOHOL RATED DEATHS HAVE DOUBLED IN THE USA AND WOMEN ARE AT AN INCREASED RISK
National Institutes of Health, found that nearly 1 million people died from alcohol-related causes between 1999 and 2017. 

In 2017, nearly half of alcohol-related deaths resulted from liver disease (31%; 22,245) or overdoses on alcohol alone or with other drugs (18%; 12,954). People aged 45-74 had the highest rates of deaths related to alcohol, but the biggest increases over time were among people age 25-34. 
 
The rates of death involving alcohol increased more for women (85%) than men (35%) over the study period. Between 2006 and 2014, the rate of people admitted to the ER due to alcohol increased 47.3% among people older than age 12. Alcohol-related hospitalizations increased 51.4% between 2000 and 2015.
