An empirical analysis of the relationship between the consumption of alcohol and liver cirrhosis mortality
() and Valdemar Smith
Abstract: The question whether intake of alcohol is associated with
liver cirrhosis mortality is analyzed using aggregate data for alcohol
consumption, alcohol related diseases and alcohol policies of 16 European
countries. The empirical analysis gives support to a close association
between cirrhosis mortality and intake of alcohol – and the latter also
concerns each of the specific beverages, i.e. spirits, wine and beer, where
other studies usually only find evidence of spirits and wine related to
liver cirrhosis mortality.
