Alcohol-related deaths increasing in the United States. A recent study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) scientists found that nearly 1 million people died from alcohol-related causes between 1999 and 2017.
The analysis of yearly death certificate data revealed that the number of death certificates mentioning alcohol more than doubled from 35,914 in 1999 to 72,558 in 2017, a year in which alcohol played a role in 2.6 percent of all deaths in the United States.
Joining Dr. Roizen to talk about these sobering statistics, and when we can do to combat this rise are Dr. Aaron White & Dr. Trish Powell, both from the NIAAA.
