The story

A global study of drinking habits has shown that women have nearly caught up with men in terms of the amount of alcohol they consume. An analysis of four million people born between 1891 and 2001 found that women's drinking has increased due to a number of reasons, including falling prices and successful marketing. The study has concluded that public health efforts must focus more on women.

Dr Tim Slade - The University of New South Wales, Australia
Increased exposure to alcohol also increases the physical and mental health risks associated with drinking too much. And so that's something that we really need to continue to look at and do something about.
