But Dr Wai, who regularly sees patients with liver-related problems, said it can be hard to estimate how much patients actually drink as many lie to their doctors for fear their medical bills will be rejected by insurance companies.

Sure, but you might need a mortician instead, according to major, new research analysis.

Worldwide, the report found, alcohol was the major cause of almost three million deaths in 2016, making it the seventh leading risk factor that year.

Alcohol use was blamed for 2.8 million deaths in 2016, according to the study, and was the seventh leading risk factor for premature death and disability.

The deaths included alcohol-related cancer, cardiovascular disease, infectious diseases, intentional injuries such as violence and self-harm, traffic collisions and unintentional injuries like drowning and fires.

"The unintended outcome of this type of research and the way its reported is that people look at it and think "well that's nonsense", he said. This study was only able to find a protective effect between low levels of alcohol consumption and a specific type of heart disease known as ischemic heart disease.

Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Newcastle v Chelsea FC
Many Newcastle fans remain frustrated by owner Mike Ashley's refusal to let Rafael Benitez spend heavily in the transfer window. "If I arrived after another coach maybe for me it was more hard , so I have to say thank you to him".

But the risk increases rapidly the more people drink.

Britain's health authority, for example, suggests not exceeding 14 drinks per week "to keep health risks from alcohol to a low level".

"Given the pleasure presumably associated with moderate drinking, claiming there is no "safe" level does not seem an argument for abstention", said David Spiegelhalter, the Winton Professor for the Public Understanding of Risk at the University of Cambridge.

The authors took data from almost 700 previous studies to estimate the prevalence of alcohol in different countries, finding that the biggest drinkers were in European countries.

While the study's authors say that moderate drinking may safeguard people against heart disease, they found that the potential to develop cancer and other diseases offsets these potential benefits, as do other risks of harm.

It's probably because alcohol damages developing cells, said the senior editor of the study, Emma Allott, who teaches nutrition at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Serena Williams banned from wearing black catsuit at French Open
Williams won the 2017 Australian Open when she was almost two months pregnant and gave birth to a daughter previous year . One must respect the game and the place", said Giudicelli. "I'm always living in a fantasy world".

There is no safe level of driving, but the Government do not recommend that people avoid driving.

The statement that the "level of consumption that minimises health loss is zero" doesn't leave much to interpretation.

One of the reports authors, Professor Sonia Saxena at Imperial College London, said: "One drink a day does represent a small increased risk, but adjust that to the United Kingdom population and it represents a far bigger number, and most people are not drinking just one drink a day". On average, each day women consumed 0.73 alcoholic drinks, and men drank 1.7 drinks. An extra four people would be affected if those non-drinkers had one drink per day.

Irish women now rank higher then men in a global league table of alcohol consumption.

The research, published Friday in the medical journal The Lancet, found that drinking was the leading factor in deaths of people between the ages of 15 and 49.

For populations 50 and older, cancers accounted for a large proportion of alcohol-related deaths, 27.1 percent for females and 18.9 percent for males.
