The number of people dying from alcohol-related causes rose by nearly 40 per cent from 5,287 in 1999 to 7,341 last year, figures obtained by the Conservative MP James Brokenshire, a shadow Home Office minister, show.
Number of deaths each year in the UK, around 600,000. Alcohol mortality has thus risen from just under 1% of all deaths to just over 1% of all deaths.
The Department of Health said that alcohol “is one of the most challenging public health issues we face”.
No it isn\’t you lying little shit.
