Swiss boozers Study shows one in five drink too much alcohol

One fifth of the population tends to drink too much on a regular basis, according to new figures published by the Federal Health Office. The results are based on interviews with 11,000 Swiss aged 15 and over.

The survey is part of wide ranging monitoring of the nation’s consumption of addictive substances, under a system set up by the health office in January 2011.
