The WHO and the EU want you to stop drinking any alcohol.
I don’t know where this started but the WHO’s official position is that there is no such thing as a safe level.
Last December, the European Parliament followed with a long-awaited vote to say there is no safe level. After failing to get this passed in the past, this was included as part of their “Beating cancer plan”. The next stage for this is the EU Assembly.
These actions could result in restrictions on promotion, minimum pricing, bland labelling rules (a la tobacco), increased duty and taxes, removal of support for grape-growing regions etc. This could undermine swathes of culture worldwide.
I am sure that those in the know will be doing what they can to try to keep this fervour under some sort of control but wonder whether we should all be doing more?
