Alcohol and cancer – Editorial – The Lancet

Pardon the pun but this editorial from The Lancet makes sober reading, especially on new year’s day.

Unfortunately, we live in an age where the political classes are undermining evidence in favor of their political aspirations. Also, the mainstream media are quick to publish eye-catching headlines about latest medical research, pandering to editorial and owner bias. Sadly, those most at risk just ignore the prevailing evidence and continue to abuse themselves.

Why should the majority continue to support the minority who fail to take proper care of themselves?

Thoughts?
