Problems with alcohol appear to be a common curse, afflicting almost all industrialized nations as well as the developing countries. at least 10 million people suffer the misuse. It is In the United States today of estimated that 205,000 individuals die prematurely each year from a variety ethanol-induced factors, including cirrhosis, cancer, heart disease, suicide, homi cide, and highway fatalities and other accidents. In purely economic terms, the alcohol-related cost to our society in 1975 is estimated at nearly $43 billion in lost production, medical expenses, motor vehicle accidents, fire losses, and the maintenance of social mechanisms to deal with these problems.
