Alcohol-related deaths remain a ‘silent epidemic’ in Canada: expert

Data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) show 10 Canadians die in hospital every day from harm caused by substance use, and 75 per cent of those deaths are related to alcohol.

Alcohol is effecting a lot of lives in Canada. I didn't know the percentage was so high.
