What Is More Important to The Members of The European Parliament – The Health Of Their Citizens Or The Interests Of The Alcohol Industry?
Eurocare and other health organisations wrote a joint press release with regards to the Parliamentary Report “Strengthening Europe in the fight against cancer” (BECA report). The science and evidence are clear and unequivocal: alcohol causes cancer. Citizens across the European Union have a right to know how alcohol negatively affects their health, at all levels of consumption. For this reason, visible and clear health warnings on the labels of alcoholic beverages should be introduced to raise awareness. The health community is appalled that Members of European Parliament have listened to the alcohol industry rather than to scientists and public health experts. Read the joint press release HERE.
