This event has ended, but if you think it looks interesting, you might want to check out our other upcoming talks. Our speaking events take place monthly in Liverpool city centre and are free to attend.
Colin Angus - A healthy relationship with alcohol?

Alcohol is something of a national obsession - deeply ingrained in many aspects of British culture and available on almost every street corner. Yet we are regularly faced with conflicting messages about the impact alcohol has on our health - will a glass of wine a day keep the doctor away, or give you cancer? Deaths caused by alcohol have increased sharply in recent years, yet young people are drinking less than ever. In this talk Colin will examine the data behind the health impacts of alcohol, the evidence behind drinking guidelines and try and make sense of recent changes in our relationship with the demon drink.
