‘Mortality among a cohort of heavy drinkers in Edinburgh & Glasgow’: New report

News Release issued today on behalf of Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (SHAAP) and Edinburgh Napier University.

A new report carried out by Edinburgh Napier University for SHAAP into early mortality of heavy drinkers in Scotland  is launched today. The study shows the extent of early death within a group of 600 patients, with over 100 of them dying around 25 years earlier than the normal life expectancy in Scotland; and notes the significant consumption of cheap alcohol, particularly vodka and white cider in this group. This report is particularly relevant, in view of the Scotch Whisky Association's renewed challenge on minimum unit pricing at the UK Supreme Court next week.
