Minimum alcohol pricing is nigh

I know it's not what you said. I'm trying to work out why advertising to improve awareness of one brand over others is bad when it comes to alcohol and acceptable when it comes to everything else. I'm not disputing advertising works. I'm disputing the fact it works to make people start doing some

Minimum alcohol pricing is nigh

If commercial entities pushing people into choosing their product is a bad thing, do you think all advertising should be banned? If you do, fair enough. I think it's unlikely that advertising has any significant effect on making people drink in the first place. I started drinking cheap cider in fi

Units of alcohol per week...

Spot on. I like to drink. I regularly drink more than the recommended guidelines, but I still appreciate the fact they exist. If the guidelines weren't there, I'd probably drink more than I do currently. Drinking any amount is harmful. It's all about balancing that harm with the enjoyment you get f

Biological males in women's sport

Hi Monica, I'm not sure what testing will need to be done. There is a loud noise coming from the box, that sounds like a fan. It's loud to the point of distraction when watching some quieter programmes. Is this a known issue with the horizon box?
