The UK Chief Medical Officers have published new guidelines for low-risk levels of alcohol consumption. This brief guide will explain what they mean.
Alcohol Research UK welcomes the new guidelines by the UK Chief Medical Officers and calls for a public debate to increase understanding on the levels of risk associated with alcohol consumption.
Dr David Foxcroft discuss some of the latest research into alcohol education and prevention in schools, in particular the impact of programmes such as the Good Behaviour Game and the Strengthening Families programme. He suggests that community-oriented developmental prevention can have a significant impact on risk factors associated with drinking, but that we need a better understanding of how prevention effects are moderated by other factors such as gender.
