There has been a “worrying” increase in the number of women in their 30s and 40s who are dying from alcohol misuse, research suggests.
Despite a downward national trend in the number of alcohol-related deaths in England and Scotland, the number of deaths of women born in the 1970s has “disproportionately increased” since the middle of the last decade, the study found.
The researchers urged health officials use the figures as a “warning signal”.
Comparatively with men, a study published earlier in the year revealed that while there has been a 20% increase in men binge drinking, women binge drinkers have increased by 28%.
The study, published online in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, focused on Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester, all of which have similar levels of poor health and deprivation.
