What does it mean alcohol-related deaths? It means injuries caused by alcohol drinkings, like car crashes or health disorders. For example, from injuries caused by the use of alcohol, as a car crash and suicide, were killed 29 percent from a total number. While from digestive disorders, which are also called by alcohol, were registered 21 percent of deaths, and cardiovascular disease took 19 percent.
