Death Rates Among Chronic Heavy Drinkers Can Be Reduced By Alcohol Taxes

Donnerstag 12. August 2010 von htm

Adjusting the alcohol tax in Florida to account for inflation since 1983 would prevent 600 to 800 deaths each year in that state from diseases caused by chronic heavy alcohol use, according to a new study from the University of Florida. The Florida legislature last increased alcohol taxes in 1983.
The new study, which analyzed death rate and tax data from 1969 to 2004, is published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research (ACER). (Source: Medical News Today, 8/10/10)
