Alcohol Sales may predict ER Patient Volume

The chance of being the victim of a violent assault increases 13% for every 1,000 litres of alcholol sold in your community. Right now ER workers around the world are saying "no s***". The implications are big however because restricting alcholol sales during peak demand could lower assault rates. A critical review of the article can be found in the same issue of PLoS Medicine.

I would like to share my TRUE story of how my late husband & myself basically ALLOWED alcohol to destroy our health & our lives.
If you could let me know, if possible.
Many thanks.
