Don keeps popping up in the media with one scare story after another about how the demon booze is going to kill us all off.
Here is the latest cock waving on Don's part. Going on a drinking binge could leave you wide open to infections, as well as hangovers, work suggests.
Drinking copious amounts of alcohol in one session scuppers the immune system by knocking out proteins essential for fighting off bacteria and viruses.Don Shenker, chief executive of the charity Alcohol Concern, said: "While we all know the immediate short term effects of binge drinking, there's now more evidence emerging about how it can damage our bodies in the longer term.
Really Don? Well why not open your trousers Don an see if you have grown a penis and some nuts yet?
I will point out as well that the so called charity "Alcohol Concern", gets most of its money from HM Govt, yep its a quango. The fake charities site has a lot more detail on alcohol concern. In effect an outsourced bit of government to push the policy of regulation, control and fear - as well as higher taxes.
Then we had this unproven gem from Don on how having half a brown ale can cause cancer. Yep, nothing like a good old cancer scare to frighten the plebs, even if it turns out to be unproven shit, like 99.9% of all Don says.
One point is that of the so called booze units, the recommended guidelines that were in fact plucked out of the air and have no basis in real science what so ever:
Guidelines on safe alcohol consumption limits that have shaped health policy in Britain for 20 years were “plucked out of the air” as an “intelligent guess”.
The Times reveals today that the recommended weekly drinking limits of 21 units of alcohol for men and 14 for women, first introduced in 1987 and still in use today, had no firm scientific basis whatsoever.
Don even pretends to be helpful, what his help equates to is bans and extra costs, they openly push for the following:
- Supports banning happy hours = higher costs.
- Raising the price of alcohol = higher costs.
- Banning glass bottles in pubs = higher costs.
- Warning labels on cans and bottles = higher costs.
- Along with the use of piss poor plastic glasses, now used in my town centre and another cost that struggling pubs have to deal with.
From the Morning advertiser...Alcohol Concern chief executive Don Shenker offered to work alongside the Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) and think tank the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) to investigate ways to help responsible pubs survive.
Having Don help pubs is like getting child care from Gary Glitter. The bloke is a curtain twitcher, a control freak who were he not on the state funded teat thanks to his fake charity, would be reporting his neighbors for putting the wrong rubbish in the wrong bin. Who knows maybe Don does that in his spare time?
