Deaths can be caused by the abuse of alcohol, not by the moderate consumption of it. No one knows how many people die from the abuse of alcohol each year.
In the UK its about 300, but as a whole in the world, there aren't many deaths, especially in comparison to other drugs such as alcohol and tobacco. To add to this, keep in mind that ECSTASY RELATED DEATHS is very, very, very different to ECSTASY INDUCED DEATHS. Ie, some idiot might decide to drive a bunch of friends home after a big night out, he'll have 5 pople in the car including himself and he is on Ecstasy. If he crashes and dies and kills everyone, that is regarded as FIVE ecstasy related deaths. But ZERO ecstasy induced deaths.
The misuse of alcohol causes many deaths per year worldwide. Between alcohol related illness and accidents, over three million people die per year.
