Editorial – August 2018

Welcome to the August 2018 edition of Alcohol Alert, the Institute of Alcohol Studies newsletter, covering the latest updates on UK alcohol policy matters.

This month, a news report finds that three out of every five Brits have experienced drunken behaviour on flights. Other articles include: the alcohol industry relies on heavy drinkers; The Lancet's Global Burden of Disease Study declares no level of alcohol improves health; and a study exploring the links between alcohol and dementia leads to some confusion in press reports.
