[Correspondence] Liver disease mortality trends: a response to the editor

We read the Offline Comment by Richard Horton (Jan 13, p 106)1 that summarised the evidence and current policy debate in England around minimum unit pricing for alcohol with interest. Unfortunately, the Comment contained an important error, which has already been repeated in UK parliamentary hearings and that we would like to correct to avoid it being repeated elsewhere. This error is the statement that “liver disease is on a trajectory to become the biggest cause of death in England and Wales”.
