The Drinking World
The nations of the world, by drinking habits:
Europe is the region with the highest consumption of alcohol per person, making up the entire top 10.I guess this means we've got some catching up to do:
Belarus takes the top spot, with people on average drinking 17.5 litres of pure alcohol a year, followed by the Republic of Moldova where the figure is 16.8 litres and Lithuania at 15.4 litres.
Australia and Canada also have high levels of alcohol consumption, with people on average drinking 12.2 and 10.2 litres a year respectively.
In the United States the figure is marginally lower at 9.2 litres.
