Every decade the alcohol harms get worse. Old solutions like taxes and laws fail.
Financially – In the USA alcohol costs our society about $250 Billion a year. That is over $1500 per Tax return, every year. We'd like to reduce these financial costs without needing more laws and taxes.
Emotionally – "Everyone knows someone"... with some sort of mental health, alcohol, or chemical dependency. There are countless hundreds of thousands of abuses and families torn apart every year due to excess.
Physically – In the USA, over 140,000 a year die from alcohol-related causes per the CDC. Alcohol is a brain neurotoxin, a symptom of excess. Stress and hyper-stimulated brains seek relief in the toxic over the counter chemicals and it's harming and killing too many.
Cancers – Most people are unaware of the cancer risks related to alcohol. Drinking raises your risk of getting six kinds of cancer— Mouth and throat, voice box (larynx), esophagus, colon and rectum, liver, and breast (in women). The less you drink, the less your risk.
Evolution – It's not dramatic to say that our over stimulating and excessive self-medicating are stumbling us on the revolutionary path. We are hurting ourselves more than in any other time in humanity. We are evolving our environments to be incredibly addictive and toxic, and harming generations now and future. We need a thinking change.
ANNUALLY - Alcohol costs our society:
