Increase In 30-40yr Old Women Dying of Alcohol Abuse
A study which suggests a rise in the number of women in their 30’s and 40’s dying from alcohol misuse is a “warning sign”, researchers have said. Despite a downward overall trend in the number of alcohol-related deaths in England and Scotland, the number of deaths among women born in the 1970s has “disproportionately increased” since the mid-2000s, the study found.
Rehab Guide based their focus on people living in Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester, all of which have similar levels of poor health, deprivation and Alcohol Abuse. This research focused on deaths related to alcohol over the last three decades among residents born between 1910 and 1979.
The study, the results of which were published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, found that in all three cities, alcohol abuse death rates stabilized in the early 2000s and fell during the latter part of the decade, apart from in women born during the 1970s. It suggests that unlike men born at a similar time, women die from alcohol-related causes much earlier than they did during the 1970s.
“The similarity of trends in alcohol abuse related deaths in young women in Glasgow, Manchester and Liverpool raises real concerns for the long-term health of this cohort in both England and Scotland,” Rehab Guide have picked up on this worrying statistic and have stressed that “It is imperative that females within this age category are made aware of the dangers attached to their alcohol misuse, and the devastating impact that alcohol can have on them.
