Scots drink warning

18th October 2007

Research has revealed that more than one million people in Scotland are drinking at potentially harmful levels.

The study, for Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems (Shaap), suggested that many people consumed more alcohol than was recommended by government guidelines and it suggested that banning promotions in supermarkets could cut alcohol related illness. Shaap has been established by medical royal colleges in Scotland and wants to see official policy directed at lowering alcohol consumption in the population as a whole.
