Binge drinking hits Australians hard

Alcohol-related assaults are leaving large numbers hospitalised on a daily basis.

    Alcohol drinking has been on the rise in Australia, where binge drinking has correlated to violent acts that sometimes land people in the hospital.

    On average, almost 200 Australians every day are victims of alcohol-related assaults, and some blame the problem on advertising.
