Alcohol consumption and its biological results in the form of hepatic cirrhosis in Poland and other European countries were investigated in recent years. The extent of the problem of hepatic cirrhosis in the population was gauged on the basis of specific coefficients of mortality. The strongest correlation was found between the consumption of alcoholic drinks as calculated for the amount of pure alcohol per capita drunk in beer and wine-drinking countries. In .apprx. 70% of cases the incompatibility of the coefficients of mortality between the wine and beer-drinking countries may be explained by the amount of alcohol consumed. In countries where spirits are chiefly drunk only 31% of the incompatibility between them may be connected with the amount of alcohol consumed and so a set of other factors such as the style of drinking must play a part. Disproportionately more deaths from hepatic cirrhosis occur in wine-drinking countries than in those where spirits are drunk. Comparison of the data on deaths from hepatic cirrhosis in Poland with statistics on the incidence and mortality of viral hepatitis cannot have any significant bearing on so large a rise in deaths from cirrhosis of the liver, especially in male urban dwellers. Attention is called to the disquietening fact that there is a steep rise in deaths for hepatic cirrhosis in young men. The results of the studies presented should stimulate an energetic action against alcoholism.
