Alcohol consumption of adults in Germany

The first article - the Focus - addresses harmful alcohol consumption, which is one of the five essential risk factors for disease and impairments. It is considered to be a contributory cause for more than 200 diseases. Data from health surveys carried out by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) allow an evaluation of trends in hazardous alcohol consumption.

Three fact sheets complement the Focus and discuss alcohol intoxication, accidents involving alcohol and mortality due to alcohol.
