- High risk drinkers would cut their consumption by the equivalent of 14 bottles of vodka a year
- Evidence from the University of Sheffield’s Alcohol Research Group shows a minimum unit price (MUP) would cut drinking by nearly twice the national average in the North of England
- Introduction of a MUP could also save almost 8000 lives in the North over the next 20 years, almost half of the lives that c...
It's that time of the month again when we explore what new publications have been produced by HEDS in collaboration with colleagues in ScHARR and further afield. Many of these are currently in press, so you can find much of our work in its open access form via our institutional repository. Tuck in here.
