PATNA, April 20 (TheBiharPost/IBNS): Liquor ban in Bihar has resulted in a sharp decline in number of patients with liver-related problems, according to doctors.

Doctors say prior to liquor ban, Bihar was reporting an alarming number of liver-related problems. Many had their liver totally damaged owing to heavy consumption of liquor.


“But post liquor ban, the number of patients with bad livers have fallen by 90 percent,” revealed Dr Ravi Kumar Raman of Nalanda Medical College and Hospital, Patna while speaking at a function organized on “World Liver Day” on Wednesday.

Another senior health expert, Dr Vimal Kumar too made similar observations. “The number of liver patients have gone down sharply post liquor ban in the state,” he added. Dr Kumar is MD, medicine and a gastroenterologist.

Bihar enforced total ban on sale, consumption and manufacture of liquor in April last year under pressures from women organizations.
