Female drink rate is worst in Europe

PUBLISHED April 22, 2005

Young women in Britain drink far more heavily than their European counterparts and the amount of alcohol they consume is predicted to rise by almost a third.

Women aged 18-24 living in the UK consume 216 litres of alcoholic drinks a year but experts claim that this amount will increase to 291 litres by 2009.
A report by Datamonitor says alcohol consumption among young female adults has been spurred on by "feminine beverages".
