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.
