Alcohol Related Deaths
Drinking alcoholic beverages in an irresponsible, excessive, and abusive way can lead to quite a few diverse
alcohol related deaths.
Indeed, there are many clearly identified alcohol related deaths and several less apparent alcohol related
deaths in the alcohol abuse and alcoholism research literature.
Common Alcohol Related Deaths
Perhaps the most apparent alcohol related deaths concern the following: alcohol-related traffic fatalities, loss
of life from excessive alcohol withdrawal symptoms, premature deaths from chronic alcohol dependency, deadly
alcohol overdose, and the lost of life of children due to extreme fetal alcohol syndrome and other excessive birth
Some less obvious alcohol related deaths take place in the in the home via wife battering, child abuse, and
homicide; in the workplace via alcohol-related accidents, homicides, and injuries; and in society in general via
homicide and suicide.
Cancer and Excessive and Abusive Drinking
Alcohol related deaths also result from various types of cancer that are directly or indirectly caused by
chronic and abusive drinking. Some of the more conventional kinds of cancer that are alcohol-related and that
normally lead to death entail the following:
- Cancer of the larynx
- Rectal cancer
- Cancer of the colon
- Cancer of the throat
- Kidney cancer
- Cancer of the lover
- Cancer of the esophagus
- Cancer of the stomach
Non-Cancerous Alcohol Related Deaths
The following is a list non-cancerous diseases, medical conditions, health challenges that are alcohol-related
and that typically lead to the loss of life:
- Alcohol-induced coma
- Brain damage
- Ulcers from the perforation of the stomach and the intestines
- Kidney and urinary tract infections
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- Cardiovascular challenges like strokes and heart failure
- Organ and system malfunction
- Kidney failure
Conclusion: Alcohol Related Deaths
A review of various research studies demonstrates a variety of alcohol related deaths from quite a few
incontrovertible and some not so obvious sources.
Some of the more instantly recognizable ways in which people lose their lives from excessive and abusive
drinking involve traffic fatalities, homicides, chronic alcohol addiction, excessive alcohol withdrawal symptoms,
from various alcohol-related birth defects such as fetal alcohol syndrome, suicides, and from alcohol
Other fairly obvious alcohol related deaths result from many types of cancer. Examples of less self-evident
alcohol related deaths result from non-cancerous, alcohol-related health problems, medical conditions, and
illnesses such as heart failure, pancreatitis, alcohol-induced coma, organ failure, brain damage, and strokes.
It seems that almost every year medical scientific investigation uncovers another illness or psychological and
physical medical problem specifically caused either directly or indirectly from chronic alcoholism.
Regrettably, more than a few of these alcohol-related medical obstacles and issues have resulted in the
unforeseen deaths of countless numbers of people.
One would assume, therefore, that access to this information would drastically lessen the number of people who
become people who are alcohol dependent. Unfortunately, it may be stressed, the medical and alcohol addiction death
statistics do not corroborate this argument.
