Alcohol Consumption Around The World (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

The Organization For Economic Cooperation And Development (OECD) recently released their 2009 collection of health data sets for OECD states.

Combing through the data, there are a few surprising nuggets of information - take the apparent fact that British children have the best dental health (what is it that happens when they enter adulthood then?)

But with the holiday season on our mind, we decided to focus on a subject of particular relevance this time of year - alcohol.

The OECD data shows alcohol consumption in liters per capita for people 15 year old and over. The data is from 2007 or the latest year available.

It turns out that Mexicans don't tend to drink much, while, despite stiff competition from most of Europe, the Luxembourgers really know how to party. Do you find the results surprising? Let us know!
