A Drink A Day Keeps the Doctor Nearby

According to the World Health Organization, excessive daily alcohol drinking is the most common cause of cirrhosis (or liver damage and/or failure) worldwide. Approximately 6 percent of global deaths are caused by alcohol, the majority of which are attributed to alcoholic cirrhosis. A new study published by the European Association for the Study of the Liver found that increased daily drinking can contribute to this liver disease. Researchers found that the risk of someone being burdened with cirrhosis increased 11 percent when moving from the moderate to heavy daily drinking classification (up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men). bit.ly/1OwVncl
