The student version of the BMJ is running a poll today asking medical students to vote on whether minimum unit pricing for alcohol is a good idea. At time of writing, 78% of those voting are in favour. Students are more usually known for embracing alcohol in all its forms, but these students of course see the results of too much alcohol at first hand, as part of their training.
BMJ also featured an article, which I have to declare an interest in as I co-wrote it with Alice Buchan, a fourth-year medical student at Oxford. It’s called A Minimum Price for Alcohol: what you should know and why you should care. I’ll post it up when the electronic version is available.
