Big Alcohol Keeps People in the Dark about Alcohol’s Cancer RiskPosted December 04 2020
Alcohol’s cancer risk is well known and documented across the world. Nevertheless, the general public still remains largely unaware of this risk. Evidence shows that Big Alcohol is doing everything they can from muddying the science to propagating myths to keep people in the dark.
But now, a new petition has been filed to the Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) in the United States to upgrade the warning labels on alcohol containers to include cancer risk. Labeling has been found through previous research to be effective in increasing public awareness about cancer risk and to reduce consumption.
