Birthday drinking 'is bad for your health'

We all enjoy a drink now and then, but for many people their birthday is just the excuse they need for an alcohol-fuelled blowout, but new research has shown this annual indulgence could have serious health implications.

A study carried out by the Society for the Study of Addiction focused on birthday celebrations among adolescents and young adults and revealed hospital admissions among this group were significantly higher during birthday weekends.

Overall, the results showed a 114.3 per cent spike in emergency department admissions relating to alcohol consumption during these periods, highlighting the need for many young adults to take a more considered approach to their birthday celebrations in many instances.

The study concluded: "There appears to be an increase in alcohol-related adverse events from drinking around the time of one's birthday among young adults."

Individuals keen to undo some of the effects of a hangover might like to invest in oxygen equipment to help rouse them the day after their revelry.
