The Dangers Of Drinking Too Much – Part 1 of 3
The Dangers Of Drinking Too Much. A fresh report finds that six people die in the United States each day after consuming far too much alcohol in too compendious a time – a condition known as alcohol poisoning. “Alcohol poisoning deaths are a heartbreaking reminder of the dangers of excessive alcohol use, which is a leading cause of preventable deaths in the US,” Ileana Arias, backing deputy director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an agency news release. According to the new CDC Vital Signs report, the bottle poisoning kills more than 2200 Americans a year.
Adults aged 35 to 64 account for 75 percent of these deaths, and white males are most often the victims. Alcohol poisoning death rates diversify widely across states, ranging from 5,3 per million people in Alabama to 46,5 deaths per million people in Alaska. The states with the highest alcohol poisoning undoing rates are in the Great Plains, western United States and New England, the CDC said. According to the agency, consuming very high levels of alcohol can cause areas of the brain that conduct breathing, heart rate and body temperature to shut down, resulting in death.
