Alcohol Alert

Alcoholic drinks sold in England are to carry health warnings by the end of 2008, following a voluntary agreement between the government and the drinks industry.

The warnings will not be as strong as those on cigarette packs and will, apparently include words like "know your limits".

Currently, more than 7 million people in the UK drink more than the recommended units, which are 3 to 4 for men and 2 to 3 for women.

I don't think many people who drink are going to pay much attention to the health warning on the bottle or can. After all, the strong health warning on cigarette packs doesn't seem to have stopped many people from smoking, has it?
