Who is King of the Drug World?
Granted, these are American statistics, but even if we halve all the numbers for South Africa, alcohol is still King of the Drug World!
Who claims 50 times more lives than all the illegal drugs combined? Who costs the American people 130 billion dollars every year to mop up its blood-bath of human slaughter? Who destroys one in every four families in America? Who kills over 200,000 Americans each year? Is it crack? Is it cocaine? Could it be heroin or nicotine, or perhaps dagga or prescription medication?
No, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the drug world and number one killer of Americans is KING ALCOHOL! And nobody dares utter a peep!
THANKS TO KILLER ALCOHOL . . .
- There are over 18 million alcoholics in America
- Cirrhosis of the liver kills over 30,000 each year and rising
- 50 percent of the people on welfare are due to killer alcohol
- 80 percent of all fire deaths are due to killer alcohol
- 65 percent of the drownings
- 22 percent of home accidents
