Unfortunately, the UK government through the National Health Service is not doing enough to promote moderate alcohol consumption. It’s just like obesity which is another time bomb.
Sadly, people who binge on alcohol, food or drugs shrug their shoulders at research evidence – they know that Britain’s public healthcare service will give them priority treatment.
Things will not change until the props are removed, like introducing a range of charges for public healthcare in the UK.
