Who is responsible for the public's health? The role of the alcohol industry in the WHO global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol

Who is responsible for the public's health? The role of the alcohol industry in the WHO global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol | Public health policing | Scoop.it

In this editorial the Editors of Addiction join over 500 public health leaders and 27 organizations in their endorsement of the ‘Statement of Concern’ addressed to the Director General of the World Health Organization. The Editors support the Statement's contention that the global alcohol industry should have no role in the formulation of public health policies.

BridgetM's comment, October 12, 2013 7:30 PM
I have long believed this to be true, and I am glad studies are focusing on this issue. Our country is so consumed by right and wrong, that we are constantly trying to control and criminalize things that may not be morally favorable to some (mostly smaller) populations. Things like abortions, gay marriage and less-harmful drug use are illegal in most states, where most kids have access to any number of pills in their parents medicine cabinet. It's a double standard that is hard to correct, but I think this country is slowly moving in the right direction. I think this process will take time, and it will also take politicians listening to studies and research, rather than uninformed Americans. I know people who use drugs for recreation and I would consider alcohol a much worse "drug" than marijuana. For a newer "progressive" country we are really behind the times on this.
Rashaad's comment, October 12, 2013 10:18 PM
This is a very interesting article. I was surprised by the fact that decriminalization of drugs actually decrease the consumption and misuse by under-aged population. The reason might be that since it is not illegal anymore, it loses its beauty, so teenagers actually stay away more... This might be interesting to present to the local government in connection to alcohol consumption laws, since the same effect might be discovered also in the alcohol use and would actually make the situation better in the USA. The reduction of the drug-related harm is also interesting and in the case of alcohol might actually help to decrease the terrifying statistics of DUY's and dead drunk drivers.

Vancouver police are warning local drug addicts to use the supervised injection facility Insite after two people died after injecting heroin without anyone to assist them.  The warning, issued in an advisory on Monday, caught operators of Insite off-guard. They said the police department had not been in touch with them to further explain the advisory.
