Government ministers should accept that people like to get drunk from time to time and stop labelling Britain as a “nation of binge-drinkers”, say researchers from Bath University. They say that many people “binge-drink” at some stage in their lives and as a result public health messages urging people to drink moderately are widely ignored. Young people, especially, thought the recommended limits on units of alcohol consumption were “unrealistically low”. The criticism comes a week before health ministers launch a new high-profile £10m advertising campaign warning drinkers about the dangers of excessive consumption. The Observer 11/05/08 page 21
