Blood testing can establish a consumption history for up to 28 days
Around 3.5 million children under 16 live with at least one binge drinking parent, according to the Silent Voices report published by The Children’s Commissioner for England, September 2012.
People who have been drinking heavily or using alcohol regularly are those who consume at least 60 grams of alcohol per day. That’s 7.5 units a day, which is far more than the Government’s daily guideline of 3-4 units for men and 2-3 units for women.
As well as the general toxic effects alcohol has on cells in the body, heavy or prolonged use of alcohol can lead to more serious psychological damage such as: depression, aggression, dependency and impairment of judgment. All of these have detrimental effects for an individual’s capacity to work and take care of dependants.
