Alcohol-Related Deaths

... have at least doubled in the past two decades, not counting those where the connection goes unreported.  While a connection with opiates is noted, this is a small portion; the largest portion died due to liver disease, with drugs a very distant second.

Funny how the authors aren't asking why more people are so desperate to stop feeling their life that they wind up dying.  People drink for many reasons, but the root cause of drinking too much  is generally that they just don't want to be there feeling that.
