A great discussion of the role and remit of Drinkaware has just been published in an academic journal called Addiction. Drinkaware is a body which provides information about alcohol and harms, and it is funded by the alcohol industry. Jim McCambridge and colleagues have written a damning critique of the information Drinkaware chooses to provide to the public, and how it chooses to provide it, but also, how Drinkaware sites are routinely used by the NHS, amongst others. This is a scandal waiting to happen.
I don’t usually post up academic articles, but this one is worth a read.
