The country recording the highest level was Luxembourg, at 18 litres per person annually, followed by the Czech Republic 16.2 litres and Estonia 16 litres.

Many chronic diseases are associated with excessive alcohol intake. Examples included liver, cardiovascular, neurological and gastrointestinal diseases, gout, as well as nutritional deficiencies.

地圖顯示2003年歐盟國成人消耗酒精量,當中盧森堡錄得最高的水平,每人每年達十八公升。其次是捷克,十六點二公升及愛沙尼亞,十六公升。

攝取過多的酒精與很多慢性病有一定的關連,例如肝病、心臟血管病、神經及消化系統病、痛風、營養缺乏等等。
