Europeans Love To Drink
The world's heaviest drinkers are in Europe. A new report from the World Health Organization reveals people there put away close to three glasses of wine a day. That's almost double the world average. The study found that the heaviest drinkers call eastern and central-eastern Europe home. Those in the Nordic countries drank the least of the Europeans. Still, people in the Nordic nations had a high hazardous drinking score. That score took into account behaviors such as binge drinking, drinking in public places and drinking that's not part of a meal. The WHO study concluded a much higher percentage of deaths are linked to alcohol in Europe, compared to the rest of the world.
