Alcohol and cancer videos


“Globally, 320 000 young people aged 15-29 years die annually, from alcohol-related causes, resulting in 9% of all deaths in that age group. Too few countries use effective policy options to prevent death, disease and injury from alcohol use. According to WHO report from last year, wider implementation of policies is needed to save lives and reduce the health impact of harmful alcohol drinking. It is our duty to act, thus protecting health as well as well-being of our European citizens.”

Member of the European Parliament and President of the MEPs Against Cancer,

Alojz Peterle (EPP, Slovenia)
