Alcohol kills one person every 10 seconds worldwide

Geneva (AFP) - Alcohol kills 3.3 million people worldwide each year, more than AIDS, tuberculosis and violence combined, the World Health Organization said Monday, warning that booze consumption was on the rise.

Including drunk driving, alcohol-induced violence and abuse, and a multitude of diseases and disorders, alcohol causes one in 20 deaths globally every year, the UN health agency said.

"This actually translates into one death every 10 seconds," Shekhar Saxena, who heads the WHO's Mental Health and Substance Abuse department, told reporters in Geneva.

Alcohol caused some 3.3 million deaths in 2012, WHO said, equivalent to 5.9 percent of global deaths (7.6 percent for men and 4.0 percent for women). ...

americans obsession (especially evangelicals) with sugary substances such as the sugar punch of a large glass of grape juice.... causes all those with candida to feed their infections, the byproduct being alcohol. those that do not eat lacto-fermented foods and ruin their gut, and drink the sugary substances that lead to diabetes are a walking distillery. try to take their sugar away, you'll have the same response as taking booze from an alcoholic. some anti-alcohol Christians are making themselves drunk on large supersize high fructose syrup drinks and juices.

On and on you go....scripture to support your position please,which is the absolute prohibition against the use of alcohol.

I am not promoting,supporting or encouraging the use of alcohol for anyone,but I don't need to control other people or speak lies and attempt to give them the gravity and authority of scripture to make them beleieve what I want them to beleive to be happy.

I have heard many preachers preach about what they wish the bible said...but doesn't,but through the use of creative iterpretations,word definitions and long stretched out conclusions and connections they tried their best.

Marty Tate and others have so diligently addressed using Scripture (all of it, not just bits and pieces).
Mr. Tate, as I expected, offers the usual Fundy double-talk in "The Woe of Wine": Wine is Evil Poison That Destroys People, while he also admits that Scripture says wine is a blessing of God. Logically, it can't be both, & he offers no exegetical proof for why I should believe the Welch's Grape Juice version existed in Bible times, and that this was the one implied in verses not mentioning drunkenness. He also forgets the Jesus wasn't a Levite, hence the Torah restrictions on wine for priests don't apply to Him.

BTW, since Tate thinks science is an authority equal to Scripture (citing chemistry & statistics), I'd like to know where he learned how the ancients kept grape juice from fermenting or spoiling; Welch's relies on pasteurization, which, along with refrigeration, was invented only in the 19th Century. Evidently, mankind managed to survive drinking poison for thousands of years before then!

lol ...and since alcohol has been around since time began, perhaps you could enlighten me as to which day God created alcohol, "Strat". Would it have been the same day as pornography or heroin? Man,of course,wouldn't pervert anything.(sarcasm here)
I'm really not trying to attack you. I was just suggesting that you listen to one who is more versed on the topic and listen to them. SermonAudio provides a wonderful service in that regard. Instead of attacking me,why not listen to a pastor who may be able to expound on the topic? The Word is always the source. It would take more space than I have here to recap what a pastor like Marty Tate and others have so diligently addressed using Scripture (all of it, not just bits and pieces). You may want to keep in mind that out of the mouth speaks what is in the heart. Words speak volume as to character. I find yours anemic...not as an insult btw, just out of concern.

Who is "us" why not dispense with the self flattery and just speak for yourself,stop with all the self righteous babble which shows your ignorance and quote the scripture that absolutely forbids the use of alcohol in any amount under penalty of eternal damnation.....show "us" what a brilliant bible scholar you are.

Defend alcohol,what kind of word game is this ? alcohol is a chemical that has been around since time began,it needs no defense or prosecution...it just is.

The bible plainly teaches against drunkenness in no uncertain terms....now run along and find me the scripture I ask for....oh and the definition of strong drink routine is an old one,the alcohol in that day must have been strong or there would have been no need to war against drunkenness...wine is wine,alcohol is alcohol and drunk is drunk....people like you take the bible at face value as long as it says what you want it to say,when it doesn't then its time to get creative with words and their definition,hidden meanings that have to be broken down etc etc

Perhaps you could all do us a service "Strat", and clarify what would constitute "strong drink" in today's world...and, again,you,undoubtedly dilute your alcohol of choice. Ignorance,seemingly,is your pet state of mind.I find it is interesting,though not surprising, that those who defend alcohol never want to take the time to hear what the Bible has to say on it so that they are able to address those preachers who do take the time to break it down and offer a sermon on it.It's easy to take the Bible out of context and to build a doctrine around it. You should try to pass some of your creative theology off on some of these more sound pastors.Of course,they probably would dismiss you as "being wise in your own eyes" and not as one truly seeking the Truth. That is the distinct impression that you give.

It's not what we ingest that makes us sinners but if we have an affinity for things like alcohol, it speaks volumes as to what is truly in our hearts.
Tell us about your questionable pet activities,people like you wish with all their heart that the bible prohibited the use of alcohol but it doesn't,it warns against drunekness to be sure,but not use....you are just as much a sinner as anyone who uses alcohol in moderation,or anyone who doesn't.

It was a disaster and the beginning of organized crime,the current failure known as the "Drug War" is nothing but a war on the American constitution using drugs as an excuse.....freedom is scary and most can't handle it and I'm amazed at the limitless desire people have to control other people.

Why isn't there a campaign to ban alcohol? They just want to attack cigarettes.

There's a war to attack your freedom.

Guns, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. All under attack.

Only 10% of alcoholics get meds to treat addiction, but still the best method, Freedom From Addiction, Breaking the Cycle of Sin.

No, there's no prohibition against moderate drinking in the Bible, though I believe in abstinance (sp?)

Unprofitable Servant, you are too kind, just wanting people to think is why I say these things. I mean no harm. Yes, there are those who if they had a drink would go back to their addiction, and we would not want that.

Strat you are correct we should not jump to the conclusion that someone who has a drink is a drunkard. I beieve the two main Bible principles that regulate the use of alcohol for Christians are in Romans 14:21 It is good neither to eat meat nor drink wine nor do anything by which your brother stumbles or is offended or is made weak (see also I Corinthians 8:13) and the previous verses in Romans 14 that remind us to not let our good be evil spoken for the kingdom of God is not meat and drink but righteous, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Paul said he exercised himself to have a conscience void of offense toward God and man. I would not want someone to use my actions as an excuse for either a sinners wantonness or a saint stumbling in their walk with God. Some people are saved from a life of being an alcoholic and one drink could throw them off the band wagon. The person who became an alcoholic started with that first small drink. That is why I stated earlier not sure where Neil was going with this, as it really matters not whether the Lord drank fermented drink or not.
I believe alcohol use should be in the privacy of one's own home and space away from anyone who it would cause a problem for.
