Tackle ‘national pandemic’ of alcohol abuse, say MPs

Minimum pricing and tough new rules for drink-driving were amongst a host of recommendations unveiled by a group of MPs and Peers this week, in response to a “national pandemic” of alcohol abuse.

The All Party Parliamentary Committee on Alcohol Misuse revealed its manifesto for 2015, which demonstrates the cost of alcohol-related incidents and calls for new measures to minimise alcohol-related harm.

Incidents ranging from drink-related crime to hospital admissions are thought to cost the UK economy as much as £21 billion annually. ...

Thank goodness I have never liked the taste of alcohol. I can't even swallow beer without making a face. Now, I have done my serious share.of drinking to party and get drunk, but these days, I really don't even touch it. I always see people carrying their bags out of liquor stores and drive by bars early AM to see that they already have customers, and drive by others where I see the same vehicles every single day. What a horrible life. A life I'm so glad I was able to break free from (be delivered from).

Quite a few British MP's called it a pandemic, I probably would have used the word, "scourge" But Mike of N.Y., you of all people should know that liberals think is caused by problems outside a person. http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0103/prager123102.asp (If you believe that people are basically good . . .) excerpt from which,
Denis Prager wrote:
First, if you believe people are born good, you will attribute evil to forces outside the individual. That is why, for example, our secular humanistic culture so often attributes evil to poverty. Washington Sen. Patty Murray, former President Jimmy Carter and millions of other Westerners believe that the cause of Islamic terror is poverty. They really believe that people who strap bombs to their bodies to blow up families in pizzerias in Israel, plant bombs at a nightclub in Bali, slit stewardesses' throats and ram airplanes filled with innocent Americans into office buildings do so because they lack sufficient incomes.
Something in these people cannot accept the fact that many people have evil values and choose evil for reasons having nothing to do with their economic situation....
Understanding them, I don't get up by their words.

Huh? I said there can be no such thing as an alcohol abuse pandemic. You said pandemic doesn't have to be a disease. I said pandemic refers to disease and gave a medical definition. Now you say you didn't call it a disease. Of course no one said you did, but that isn't the issue anyway. The issue is whether "pandemic" is properly used in other than disease situations. It isn't, therefore alcohol abuse cannot become a "national pandemic."

And the "news" aspect about the detrimental effects of alcoholism is? Isn't this a no-brainer? Of course, considering that alcohol kills brain cells..

Really. Pandemic refers to disease. One cannot catch alcoholism; it doesn't spread willy nilly. It's a voluntary thing you have to work at in order to get. Then it has you.

Here's a def. for you, from MedTerms Medical Dictionary:

Pandemic: An epidemic (a sudden outbreak) that becomes very widespread and affects a whole region, a continent, or the world due to a susceptible population. By definition, a true pandemic causes a high degree of mortality (death)

By contrast An epidemic affects more than the expected number of cases of disease occurring in a community or region during a given period of time. A sudden severe outbreak within a region or a group as, for example, AIDS in Africa or AIDS in intravenous drug users.

It's not a pandemic!!
It's the politicians searching for ways to cut the health budget.
If there is one thing that politicians hate it is having to spend good tax money on the peasants.
The figure you quote also approximates to the annual value put on public sector fraud, about which we hear no hue and cry!!

we should let the users of sermon audio in Great Britain that sadly they are not alone with this problem. In United States it is just as bad, & I think this statistic or statistics are from 2006 even though the article is later than that. http://www.cdc.gov/Features/AlcoholConsumption/ (Excessive Drinking Costs U.S. $223.5 Billion) .
