SELF-MEDICATION AND ABUSE OF ALCOHOL IN THE AMERICA  

Research estimates that 16,651 people died of opioid overdoses in 2010. A DEA whistleblower called Joe Rannazzisi indicated that “opioid crisis was allowed to spread – aided by congress, lobbyists…”

And:

“From 2006 to 2010 an average of 88,121 people died each year from alcohol consumption.”

On the same topic:

“Excessive drinking, mainly binge drinking, costs some $250 billion a year in lost productivity, healthcare and other expenses.”

The abuse of alcohol is a common problem around the world. It is estimated that 1 in every 8 American citizens abuse alcohol. Further, 1 in 10 working age Americans die every year.

We all know that excessive consumption of alcohol is a major cause of liver diseases.
