Alcohol brain injury

Alcohol brain injury ’crisis’ looms

  • Country ’woefully’ ill-informed on alcohol
  • Drinkers have no clue about damage levels
  • 200,000 Australians undiagnosed

MORE than 200,000 Australians are living with undiagnosed permanent brain damage caused by drinking alcohol.

And a further two million people – one in eight adults – are at serious risk of joining them due to the amounts they consume, health experts warn.

Yet the country is woefully ill-informed about how much alcohol puts a drinker at risk of brain injury.
