A recent study conducted by Alcohol Concern has revealed that these days alcohol is targeting baby boomers more as compared to young generation. Also, a large amount of NHS money is being spent on their treatments, while young people are imposing less cost.
It has been found that more than 10 million residents of England are engaged in binge drinking or levels above the recommendations. And the same had resulted in a total spending of nearly £2bn in 2010-11 on alcohol-related in-patient admissions.
On comparing, the group discovered that 454,317 patients were only the baby boomers and the number of under-24s being treated, on the other hand, was 54,682. Besides, it has been told that there was a major difference in the costs.
The young patients were costing some £64m for treatments, while the post world-war II people, born between 1946 and mid 1960s, aged 55 to 74 years now, were incurring more than £825m.
Since, drinking is linked to a number of fatal diseases, including heart, kidney or liver ailment. The charity warns people, while saying that it is no stranger to know that alcohol targets baby boomers more.
"It is the unwitting chronic middle-aged drinkers who are taking serious risks with their health", said liver disease expert Sir Ian Gilmore.
