Editorial – May 2017

Welcome to the May 2017 edition of Alcohol Alert, the Institute of Alcohol Studies newsletter, covering the latest updates on UK alcohol policy matters.

In this month's issue, a new alcohol availability report compares the alcohol policies of Australian and UK licensing authorities. Other articles include: new official figures on the nation's health show that alcohol-related admissions continue to rise, breaking 1.1 million for the first time since records began; study finds that the poorest in society are at greater harm from heavy drinking; and another from World Cancer Research Fund finds that just one alcoholic drink a day can increase the risk of contracting breast cancer.
