Alcohol can be fun. There's no rash preoccupation at the hospital
On Friday night, you put on this fresh shirt you bought with the discount, because the rest of the money is on the soppings for a few hours
Bianca calls more hospitalizations than a heart attack
You may have forgotten to eat and haven't had a sip of water since you brushed your teeth in the morning, but you know for sure that almost-but-not-the universal cost of PBR is five dollars in any given panel
According to the study, there were more than 77,000 hospitalizations in Canada last year (an average of 212 per day)
To give you an idea of how bad this is, alcohol causes more hospitalizations than a heart attack
Tim Stockwell, Director of the Centre for the Study of the Problems of B.C. Victoria University, cited in the study, "These figures are really just the tip of the iceberg."
The rest of this iceberg is directly related to young Canadian adults. Right, we
The study shows both young men and women between the ages of 10 and 19, exposed to alcohol-related incidents
It is interesting that for every 100,000 women there are 63 hospitalized due to the influence of alcohol, and 45 out of every 100,000 men
"Almost half of the students interviewed admitted that they had been drinking more than five drinks in an hour or two at 10, 11 and 12 times."
Jean Harvey, Director of the Canadian Public Health Initiative, suggests that women are more affected by this age because "[ Girls] have higher mental and behavioural disorders and deliberate self-poisoning"
Thus, men in the next age group (between 20 and 34 years of age) are more likely to be hospitalized because of alcohol than their female counterparts, so the situation is changing as young people age
This may be frightening when you learn some of the results of alcohol consumption. A
Whatever the result, he makes these PBRs a little more expensive than you ever thought
Even Harvey understands that. "We can't pretend people don't drink," she says
"This leads to health problems."
"We want people to think that this is a big question and needs some attention," he said. "People need to think of [ drinking] not only as something we should do, and that it's good-good, but it leads to health problems."
These health issues are addressed by many different institutions and organizations
Carlton University was lucky enough to have its own voluntary emergency response team-the Carlton University Emergency Response Team (CUSERT)
A group of professionally trained students at the university, CUSERT members are trained at the Canadian Red Cross level of the first responder and deal with many emergencies, including alcohol-related incidents
"Last semester, about 15% of calls were associated with alcohol," says Andrew Chen, Executive Communications Executive for CUSERT. These victims were sent to the hospital 35% of the time
One of the CIHI's things is seen in the "policies" report and how they affect every province and municipality in Canada
"We looked at things like the minimum content of alcohol," Harvey said. "When you talk about youth, this is likely to have a big impact."
Pricing is not the only initiative that reduces the risk of alcohol consumption.
There are also broader strategies on the ground, such as events related to the spread of alcohol per month, thematic weeks, game programmes, non-alcoholic beverages, and orientation programmes
For people who drink a drink, the Center for Combating Drug Addiction and Mental Health has all the opportunities and practical
Here are some of them-in our own words-to bear in mind:
"Know your personal limits," says Chen. " In other cases, when you drink, be close to the people you trust. The thing that we really hate is that people reject their friends. "
And in case someone goes too far, the CAMH has charted
If someone has passed out, CAMH recommends that you include them on your side and stay with them (to make sure they don't choke on their own vomiting). And don't be afraid to take action if a friend seems to be in serious danger
