Binge drinking and alcoholism are major healths issue here, and little if anything is done to bring it out in the open.

Alcohol causes more than liver damage. It can kill in many ways - falling down, getting in fights in bars (with machetes added for lethal effect), boat and cart accidents and heaps of domestic violence.

We're just bringing AIDS out of the closet, but there is an even bigger elephant in the room.
