More Women Dying from Alcohol in England

Categories: Alcohol, News, Research, Substance Use, Women's Issues

Findings from a recently released study in London showed that the number of women dying at an early age of alcohol abuse has almost doubled in the last 15 years. The government study found that around 14 in 100,000 women aged 35 to 54 die from alcohol-related incidents.

The Health Profile of England 2007 showed that premature death rates from cirrhosis and liver disease in females has “risen persistently” in England.

“Alcohol is our favorite drug,” says liver specialist and president of the Royal College of Physicians, Professor Ian Gilmore. “It is around 24 hours a day, and we need to examine the regulatory framework around it if we are to make any real impact.”

A review of new regulations allowing 24-hour drinking has been ordered from Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
