Philippines: Alcoholism in Philippines

The blogger at Touched by an Angel looks at alcoholism in Philippines. “The effects of alcoholism are easily shown in the sensational section of the local TV news. How often do you see wives beaten up by their husbands? Or children being sexually abused by their biological fathers? What about that actor caught for drunk driving? Though I don’t have the statistics right now, I bet there are cases of drunk -related accidents or physical abuse.”
