Father's Day: Many adolescents drink themselves in a coma
The time has come on Thursday: All over the country, men will take wet, happy excursions with handcarts. Young people in particular land in the clinic on Father's Day with a high. The DAK calls on parents to act as role models.
Almost three times as many adolescents with alcohol poisoning On Thursday, you will be able to observe men with handcarts across the country on their wet, happy trips to Father's Day. The young people in particular often drink to the point of senselessness. According to an analysis by the health insurance company DAK, the number of young coma drinkers in Germany is rising drastically on Ascension Day. As the box office announced on Tuesday in Hamburg, almost three times as many 16 to 20-year-olds ended up in hospital with alcohol poisoning than the annual average.
After alcohol excesses to the clinic However, if you look at all age groups, there was even a slight decrease on this holiday, as can be seen from the hospital statistics of DAK-Gesundheit for the past five years. The numbers refer to both genders. According to this, an average of 4.5 adolescents between the ages of 16 and 20 come to a clinic every day after alcohol excesses. It was also said that on Father's Day there was “a significant increase of 180 percent to 12.6 cases. The number of treatments increased by almost 120 percent (from 2.3 to 5 cases) among 11 to 15 year olds and by 150 percent (from 3 to 7 cases) in young adults between 21 and 25 years.
Parents should act as role models If all age groups are grouped together, statistics show that 69.3 people came to the hospital every day after uninhibited drinking. "On Father's Day in recent years, the total number was 63.4 cases, almost nine percent lower," reported the DAK, according to a dpa report. Parents are called upon by the health insurance company to show exemplary character. "Young people are strongly oriented towards what adults set for them," said Ralf Kremer from DAK.
Germans drink a lot of alcohol "Especially when drinking alcohol, fathers and mothers should always keep in mind that children could view and copy this behavior as desirable." Germans also drink a lot of alcohol regardless of Father's Day. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), every German over 15 years of age consumes an average of 11.8 liters of pure alcohol per year. This corresponds to around 500 bottles of beer. According to the WHO, consumption has remained constant since 2008, with men drinking more than twice as much as women. In other countries in Europe but also worldwide, Father's Day is not a day of widespread drinking, but a day that fathers usually celebrate with their family, for example over a good meal. (sb)
