The Life Insurance Market
People already in the habit of drinking heavily are drinking even more, in news which could make consumers consider critical illness cover.
The Institute of Alcohol Studies says that despite an overall reduction in the number of young people consuming excess alcohol, those drinking heavily are now choosing to drink even more.
Director of the organisation, Dr Adrian Bonner, makes the comments following a pledge from the UK Treasury.
The Review of Alcohol Taxation says that higher beers over 7.5 per cent alcohol content will have additional duty imposed on them.
The idea is that health problems linked to alcohol will be reduced, should certain kinds of alcohol become more expensive.
Since the effectiveness of this theory may take some years to become proven, critical illness cover would protect your financial wellbeing against conditions such as heart disease and throat cancer.
