 Heavy Drinking Increases Liver Disease Risk
People who drink alcohol every day are at a greater risk of developing liver disease than binge drinkers, according to a study.

The study has revealed that the risk of serious liver disease is higher among those who drink heavily each day over the long term than in those who drink large amounts but then take breaks, reports the Scotsman.

The researchers found that hospital admissions for alcohol-related liver disease in the UK more than doubled between 1995 and 2005 to 13,723.

Moreover, the number of deaths from liver disease has also increased to 400 per cent since 1970.

The findings appear in the journal Addiction.
