"April is Alcohol Awareness Month"

According to the CDC's Alcohol Use and Your Health Fact Sheet, drinking too much can harm your health. The CDC reports that excessive alcohol use leads to about 88,000 deaths in the United State each year, and shortens the life of those who die by almost 30 years.
