Default Air Force Logo Commentary - Alcohol Awareness Month
April is national Alcohol Awareness Month. According to the CDC, excessive alcohol use causes about 88,000 deaths each year in the U.S. For most individuals moderate amounts of alcohol is not harmful, but the U.S. National Library of Medication notes that 18 million Americans are currently living with an alcohol use disorder. Drinking alcohol increases the risk of cancers of the mouth, esophagus, pharynx, larynx, liver, and breast. Alcoholism is a disease that is chronic, just like diabetes and can be fatal if no treatment is sought.
