Alcohol kills a jumbo load of people every 17 days – new report from UK

01/03/2012

The UK’s alcohol epidemic continues – unchecked and untempered by political parties only too keen to take the money and exercise a preference for profit over life.

A harsh assessment? Read this link from the UK’s Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs, who, unlike DrinkWatch and DrinkWise are not funded by Big Liquor.

Reducing Alcohol Harm

Download report directly from: British Liver Trust.

Would a jumbo crashing every 17 days get the media to warn about the clear health risks of flying in jumbos? Probably.

Would a jumbo load of Big Liquor Fatalities every 17 days motivate the media to warn about the clear and often mortal risks of binge drinking? Absolutely not.

This failure to report and educate is a key factor added to the circumstances that create a jumbo load of victims every 17 days. Victims of accidents, illnesses, murders and assaults, along with results forthcoming from the consumption of a toxic, carcinogenic, teratogenic (Birth Defects) and addictive drug.

Mandating the provision of Audio Visual equipped, near blood test quality, BAC testing machines, in all liquor outlets, would go a long way to educating users at the critical point of sale.

Being motivated to use the BAC Testing Machines via the setting of a sensible, maximum BAC limit for pedestrian and public transport commuters will stimulate the uptake of key learnings about the toxic, carcinogenic, teratogenic and addictive qualities of this drug. Pedestrian Random Breath Testing provides this motivation. A motivation based on a Pedestrian 08 Limit.

Local Australian Media ought not to get as confused as their colleague Derryn Hinch.

There’s no doubt Derryn, the British Liver Trust reports alcohol is responsible for 80% of deaths from liver disease.

Derryn, a good bloke who has gone to jail in defense of his beliefs – but who is punching well above his weight, pulling a fantastic partner – doesn’t seem to accept the link between heavy binge drinking and alcohol induced liver disease and mortality.

Read this and learn to accept it Derryn! And discover other heinous results of unfettered access to alcohol including the cancers and Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).

Derryn will go to jail to protect children. Derryn can protect vastly more children from the gene damaging effects of FASD on children via doing everything he can to publicise the cause and effects of FASD.

1 in every 100 Derryn…

1 in Four inĀ  at least one aboriginal tribe in North America.

Millions and millions of Australians are his target

15/10/2010

Almost choked on my flat white when I read this blurt in todays Age:

”I’ve got to sell over a billion beers next year, I can’t do that just through social media. It’s got to be highly engaging and participatory, but I’ve also got to reach millions and millions of Australians.”

And:

“TV is not as effective as it used to be, less people are watching it, there are more channels. But, sadly, in my opinion 10,000 Facebook friends can’t be the answer to selling over a billion beers.”

One can only guess at the number of cancers caused by the success of such an ambition…
Or the number of women and children bashed, abused, killed and injured.
The number of one punch homicides, the cases of illnesses and addictions caused.
Probably not on this bozo’s radar…
Let’s hope this guy hasnt got the IQ to succeed.
Let’s hope his efforts leave as many children as unaffected as possible.
How many would be sucked in by his company’s Facebook and social media campaigns?
How many by sporting sponsorships, TV ads during various grand finals, ads everywhere else?
You can read the full article here: Irresistible lure of driving us to drink – great work Clare.
And you can see a kind of Drinkwise like site here at his boss’s head office somewhere in Europe – DRINKIQ – not sure where it is based, taxation being such a complex issue…
And here is an analysis of the lengths Big Liquor will go to, to get the kids involved as young as possible.
Have a look at the thinking behind these campaigns. The researchers here had to resort to diagramming the relationships between all elements.
That’s behaviour changing plotting on a large, large scale. All bases are covered – there is no possible escape from their influence.
I’m sure any and every boy or girl drinking toxic, addictive and carcinogenic alcohol, was not the intent of the Facebook and Social Media campaigns alluded to above.
Nor would such an unfortunate eventuality be anywhere on the Federal Health Minister’s mind, memory or conscious.
They have the power to immediately stop this sort of ambition coming to pass.
One can only question why a funded political party would blanch for more than a nano second to put a stop to this murderous nonsense…
What’s wrong with these people?
Banning alcohol promotion isnt prohibition – its’ common sense.
Alcohol advertising doesnt make for Responsible Drinking.
