Alcohol consumption and liver cirrhosis mortality - the population level link
2007 (English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Liver cirrhosis mortality is often used to indicate changes in population-level alcohol harm. One important rationale for this idea is the large body of evidence of a link at the aggregate level, showing that high levels of population drinking tend to be associated with high cirrhosis rates. One aim of the presentation is to review recent research addressing the relationship between population drinking and liver cirrhosis mortality in Europe with focus on studies using a similar methodology (ARIMA time series analyses). To what extent is higher alcohol consumption associated with higher rates of cirrhosis mortality in different European countries? A second aim is to focus on the recent development in Sweden. Have recent trends in alcohol consumption been associated with expected changes in liver cirrhosis mortality and morbidity?
