Consumer Insight - Alcohol Consumption and its Future Regulation

Dr. Ayesha Haroon sends along an article "Alcohol link to one in 25 deaths" here, discussing a study conducted at the University of Toronto.  Dr. Haroon highlighted that with the release of further details, the surgeon generals of the developed countries will have to reconsider their alcohol regulations while their governments will have to review policy towards alcohol sales and consumption.  Interesting fact about Europe in the article:

"Worldwide, average alcohol consumption is around 12 units a week - but in Europe that soars to 21.5. "

Alcohol in the form of consumer products have provided capitalism with exceptional wealth creation.  Perhaps too much of anything is bound to raise an eyebrow or two!
