The prohibitionists are at it again. 8 years 3 months ago #1

This time it's the the Irish Cancer Society. They want to have alcohol advertising banned. Apparently we drink 700 times what we should, which works out to less than a pint of beer a year. Spouting the "No safe level of consumption" myth.

If you're on twitter and want to raise your blood pressure at the autocratic "solutions" to your drinking being discussed the tag #ewac2013 will do the trick.

I'm trying to imagine what life would be like having only two drinks per year.

To be honest I'm thinking it's too batshit to be taken seriously and can be ignored.

Get on to [i:1nn9j0wa]Prime Time[/i:1nn9j0wa] or in front of an Oireachtas committee, there, and see how far you get with your "no safe limit" policy suggestion.

Oh I agree, which is why I think we should shout it from the rooftops.

Hey! Look at how batshit crazy these people are!

I would nearly go as far as to say that you would absorb that much alcohol naturally over the course of a year from sources such as fruit, hand sanitisers on your skin etc?.
