Drinking and Abuse

500,000 people will be slaughtered on America’s highways during the 1980’s because of alcohol-imbibed drivers. 80% of all fire-related fatalities in America involved the use of alcohol. The same could be said for: 65% of the drownings, 65% of the murders, 35% of the rapes, 30% of the suicides, 60% of the cases of child abuse, 55% of wife beatings and other assaults in the home, and 40 % of the aircraft accidents.
