The countries that drink the most in the world – W.H.O.

Health, Society/Living

FROM Business Insider

 

Alcohol consumption varies widely across the globe, and the U.S. stacks up pretty well compared to some other countries.

As the map below from the World Health Organization shows, Russians and their neighbors drink more than almost everyone else in the world.

Portugal, Grenada, and Andorra are also ranked in the highest category at more than 12.5 liters per person over the age of 15 in 2010.

WHO notes in its report that 48% of those included in this data abstain from drinking altogether. So if those people were excluded, per capita consumption among those who do drink would be even higher than what’s shown on this map.

 

Oh, yes, Nigeria, in the company of good ol’ USA and others, is in the second tier of drinkers/drunkards after Russia!  TOLA.
