CDC Report Says 38 Million Americans Drink Too Much Alcohol

Luke 17:28-30 “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built” but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

The Centers for Disease Control has released a report showing that over 38 million Americans drink too much alcohol on a regular basis.

The report says that most Americans who fall into the category of too much alcohol consumption are not actually alcoholics. They classify the people as “problem drinkers” who will binge drink or drink on specific days of the week.

The CDC also cited healthcare providers as providing poor information regarding the impact that alcohol can have on a person’s health and well being over time. Excessive alcohol consumption has been shown to enhance or cause liver disease, infections and cancer risks.

The CDC recommends anyone who consumes alcohol have an “honest chat” with their doctors regarding the impact of alcohol to their health.
