Increased Alcohol Abuse

Dr. Joe Galati last week was on the radio with Frank Morano on THE OTHER SIDE OF MIDNIGHT. The show airs every evening between 1:00-5:00 a.m. EST on 77-WABC out of New York. Dr. Galati was discussing new data from the CDC on increased deaths from alcohol over the past few years.

A new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealing a significant increase in alcohol-related deaths in the United States, with nearly 500 Americans dying each day in 2021. The spike began during the Covid pandemic and continued to rise after lockdowns in 2020. The study highlights a higher death rate among men but a quicker increase among women. Factors contributing to the surge include pandemic stress and increased availability of alcohol through home-delivery services. Binge drinking is also on the rise, particularly among middle-aged adults. Policy suggestions to address this issue include increasing alcohol prices through taxes, limiting sales, and promoting counseling. Additionally, new research is linking alcohol use even in moderation to harmful effects on health, debunking previous beliefs about the health benefits of alcohol, including red wine.
