Alcohol Consumption Up 70% Since 1990

Alcohol Consumption Up 70% Since 1990

It’s good to know I’m not the only one who enjoys a nightly beverage.

According to a new study, alcohol use is on the rise globally and it just keeps going up. Global consumption back in 1990 was 5.5 billions gallons. In 2017, however, it jumped up to 9.4 billion. That’s a 70% increase!

This means that the average adult consumes one alcoholic beverage per day. Now think about all the non-drinkers out there. It sure seems like the drinkers are making up for their lack of effort.
