Editorial – November 2014

Welcome to the November edition of Alcohol Alert, the Institute of Alcohol Studies newsletter, covering the latest updates on UK alcohol policy matters. In this issue, acclaimed public health expert Professor Sir Michael Marmot gives his thoughts on our new report "Alcohol, health inequalities and the harm paradox", which asks why lower socioeconomic groups experience greater health problems due to alcohol despite drinking less than those on higher incomes. Other articles include: Stark north-south divide over admissions and mortality rates for alcoholic liver disease, approval of a controversial new drug for treating alcohol dependence; and remembering 50 years of THINK! drink-drive campaigns.
