Surprise: Russians Are the Hardest Drinkers in the World

The not-so-surprising study shows Russians are the hardest drinkers in the world; on average, a Russian over the age of 15 drank more than 12.5 liters of pure alcohol in 2010. They sure love their vodka.

Other European countries like Portugal, Spain and France proved to be heavy drinkers, while South Korea, Australia and South Africa are doing a fantastic job as well. And us Americans? We got beat out by the Canadians, which is, well, completely embarrassing. Head over for the full infographic. [The Independent]
