March 8 2017 is International Women's Day and the theme this year is #BeBoldForChange. That's why this month I’m going to address a topic no one really wants to talk about. It’s one people like to sweep under the carpet, dispute the findings or just put their heads in the sand...
Women and alcohol – what’s the problem?
Traditionally men were the big drinkers and they suffered all the social and health consequences associated with regular, over-indulgence. Now women have become regular drinkers, often over-indulging without realising that the health consequences for women are more serious than for men. We may want equality for women but unfortunately alcohol discriminates between the sexes to our detriment. To learn why, #BeBoldForChange, and find out more about how to drink safely and the health consequences of drinking too often, or too much, by reading this month's Foodwatch Newlsetter.
