Learning! Alcohol Kills

Okay, so we already all knew that alcohol can kill people.  That is, after all, what alcohol poisoning is all about.  I don't know about you, however, but I was surprised to learn that 1 in 10 deaths of Americans are due to alcohol consumption.

Of course, this isn't just alcohol poisoning.  This is a whole host of causes of death, but those causes are all ultimately caused by alcohol.  Excessive consumption of alcohol, in fact.  Things like accidents and violence fuelled by the drink to heart disease and liver disease in drinkers.  Plus, did you know that breast cancer is linked with excessive drinking?  I, for one, did not.  Harumph.
