430 Australians get hospitalized each day from alcohol-related illnesses


430 Australians get hospitalized each day from alcohol-related illnesses as per Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education’s report in 2014.

According to Australian Bureau of Statistics, about  183.7 million litres of pure alcohol was available for consumption from alcoholic beverages in Australia in 2013-14.


“When you start to look at sub-populations, we’re seeing people drink in excess and this can lead to a very real increase in chronic conditions,” Dr Lloyd said (Head of Population Health Research).
