No 08-22:
An empirical analysis of the relationship between the consumption of alcohol and liver cirrhosis mortality

Jan Bentzen () 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.
