Acohol-Related Hospital Admissions On The Rise



The UK has seen a 6% spike in the number of alcohol-related hospital admissions.

Annually, almost a million people (800,000+) are heading to the hospital with injuries and illnesses brought on by drinking. That is about four times the number of alcohol-related admissions from 2007.

Public Health Minister, Dawn Primarolo, states the "irresponsible and harmful practices" are killing Britain's residents to the tune of heart disease and stroke caused by excessive drinking.

The KPMG performed an audit and recommended a complete overhaul of the laws which govern the alcohol industry. This increase may lead to a ban on nightclub and pub happy hours all around the UK. Things are so bad, the UK government accuses Britain of having a problem with binge-drinking.

Who knew the British could out-drink Americans?

Michael Jackson: Before & After Thriller

As you may know by now, Michael Jackson will be on the December 2007 issue of Ebony Magazine. They are showcasing him 25 years after "Thriller".

I commend him on still trying to be out there after years of controversy and court cases, but I wish the man had stayed out of the plastic surgeon's office.

Here's Micheal Jackson before "Thriller"



Here's Micheal Jackson during "Thriller"
