"Sir Ian was speaking as the charity Alcohol Concern published a report showing
that 55 to 74-year olds cost the NHS £825 million a year in alcohol-related
hospital admissions. That is 13 times more than 16 to 24-year-olds.
Sir Ian, who is also president of the British Gastroenterology Society, said:
“It is the unwitting chronic middle-aged drinkers who are taking serious
risks with their health."
–I like the way Sir Ian thinks. Or is this one of those wacky Britishisms like how when they say middle class they mean yuppie, not regular folk.
