The world’s most popular brand of booze has been named the world’s safest drinking style by the Alcohol and Drug Administration (ADA).
The agency announced its findings at a press conference in New York on Monday.
It also named brands such as Budweiser, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller Lite among those to be banned from the UK, US and Australia, as well as Spain and France.
“This new assessment provides us with a new way to measure the safety of alcohol in our country,” the FDA said.
The agency said it had recorded more than 8 million reported cases of alcohol-related deaths between 2006 and 2015, an increase of almost 1.3 million from just over 1 million the year before.
The new survey, the first in the series, analysed data from the CDC’s National Death Index (NDI), which is the nation’s official count of alcohol related deaths.
The NDI is based on an examination of all alcohol-specific deaths, excluding those due to drug overdoses and other medical conditions.
“The NDEI data provides us insight into how the world is consuming alcohol, and it allows us to make better decisions about how to protect our communities,” said Mark Siegel, director of the CDC National Center for Health Statistics.
“Our national drinking habits are changing, and the findings are encouraging.”
The agency found that the number of reported deaths rose from 1,837,931 in 2006 to 2,073,072 in 2015, a rise of 2.9 percent.
The number of alcohol poisoning deaths rose by 5 percent.
Drinkers aged 18-24 accounted for the largest proportion of deaths, at nearly 17,000 per 100,000 people.
Drinking age also rose from 16 to 18 in 2016.
The survey also found that alcohol consumption has been trending downwards for years, and is now down by more than 10 percent for women.
Drinks sold in the US have also been dropping, while in the UK and Australia sales have also fallen.
The latest figures show that overall alcohol consumption in the United States has fallen from about 26.2 drinks per person in 2015 to about 23.3 drinks per one in 2020.
That’s down by nearly one drink per person for every 100, and a fifth of Americans drink less than one drink a week, the survey said.
But there has been a dramatic increase in the number in the last few years.
Dr Siegel said that the decline in the consumption of alcohol is due to the increasing popularity of beer, wine and spirits.
“We know from the NDI that alcohol is increasingly consumed in smaller amounts and on a larger scale in countries like the United Kingdom, Australia and the United Nations,” he said.
“In this context, it’s clear that the U.S. has a lot to gain from continuing to move in this direction.”
The NDAI estimates that alcohol sales have fallen by about 25 percent since 1999, while beer sales have increased by nearly 15 percent, according to the CDC.
But the CDC said that while alcohol consumption among Americans has fallen, overall consumption has risen.
Dr. Siegel believes the rise in alcohol sales will be more pronounced in the next two years, when more Americans are drinking, because more people are consuming the drinks.
“There’s an increase in binge drinking, which I think is very concerning, because binge drinking is a very, very dangerous trend,” he told Reuters.
“People are increasingly taking on a lifestyle of drinking more, especially in the younger age group.”
Dr Sauer also said the increase in alcohol consumption is being driven by a growing number of people, especially younger people, who are more likely to be drinking heavily than they used to be.
“I think that we’re seeing a really large amount of young people, and I think that there’s a really big gap in their drinking,” he added.
