    Excessive Alcohol to Blame for 1 in 10 Deaths

    Alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 annual fatalities from 2006 to 2010, and cut those victims' lives short by 30 years. Both the short- and long-term health effects associated with drinking alcohol, such as breast cancer, liver disease, and heart disease, and violence, alcohol poisoning and motor vehicle crashes, are what ultimately led to these deaths.


    What's more, about 70 percent of these cases involved working-age adults, mostly males. And about five percent of the deaths involved people under age 21.

    "Excessive alcohol use is a leading cause of preventable death that kills many Americans in the prime of their lives," Ursula E. Bauer, director of CDC's National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, said in a press release.

    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Lack of alcohol use is to blame in 9 out of 10 people that are absolutely insufferable.

    This country has an alcohol problem.

    It's sad how acceptable it is in our society to get hammered and do dumb things.

    Prohibition isn't going to come back. I do have a feeling that in 20-30 years alcohol use might have a stigma change much like the stigma shift on smoking from the 60s to 90s.

    Elaine: "So, you're saying that 90 - 95% of the population is undateable"?
    Jerry: "UNDATEABLE!"
    Elaine: "Then how are all these people getting together"?
    Jerry: "Alcohol"?
