Women dying to drink like men

The English Chief Medical officer has warned that women are damaging their health by trying to drink like men. Prof Dame Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England said women are damaging their livers and putting themselves at risk for alcohol abuse, obesity and a whole host of other problems.

Our alcohol consumption is out of kilter with most of the civilised world,” she told Radio 4.

“We really have young people that binge drink and drink too much and it is damaging their livers young. Particularly girls don’t realise that our female livers don’t tolerate alcohol as well as men do. We should drink significantly less than men. Part of it is culture and part of it is price. We need to change both.” You can read the full blog here
