Russian men who down large amounts of vodka -- and too many do -- have an "extraordinarily" high risk of an early death, a new study says.Researchers tracked about 151,000 adult men in the Russian cities of Barnaul, Byisk and Tomsk from 1999 to 2010 . Overall, a quarter of Russian men die before reaching 55, compared with 7 percent of men in the United Kingdom and less than 1 percent in the United States.It's not clear how many Russian men drink three bottles or more a week. Alcohol has long been a top killer in Russia and vodka is often the drink of choice, available cheaply and often homemade in small villages.
