People in the UK and many other countries get more of their calories from alcohol than from sugary drinks like cola and lemonade, according to new data which suggests that tackling Britain’s drink problem may be more important for health than cracking down on sugar consumption.
Of 24 countries tracked by the data analysts Euromonitor International, all but one have higher daily calorie consumption from alcoholic drinks than sugary beverages. In the UK, adults are consuming more than 106 calories per head every day from alcoholic drinks, compared with 98 from sugar-sweetened drinks.
And therefore there must be labeling and a strategy to reduce consumption and so on.
The thing is that we already restrict alcohol consumption to adults. you know, those we judge competent to make up their own minds?
At which point the prodnoses can fuck off, can’t they?
And for added points we can note that if this is true of most countries then this is normal, isn’t it?
