 Alcoholic Liver Disease Epidemic Among Youth

The number of men and women being treated for alcoholic liver disease caused by heavy drinking in their youth is increasing sharply. The figures demanded serious action on alcohol misuse.

Hospital admissions due to alcohol-induced liver problems for 25-29 year olds rose by 60% among men and by 88% among women, between 2003 and 2010.

The price of alcohol and its promotion and availability to young people is to blame for these soaring figures.

Liver specialist Dr. Chris Record, of Newcastle University, said, "Unless our drinking habits change, it will get worse."
