That's because, according to the report, 2,200 people die annually from overconsumption of alcohol, or alcohol poisoning. That turns out to be an average of about six people every day.
Using data from 2010 through 2012, the CDC also discovered these facts: More men die from alcohol poisoning than women, most are non-Hispanic whites and, perhaps most surprising, most alcohol poisoning deaths occur among adults between the ages of 45 and 54.
