This week's feature is "Alcohol Advertising: An Inside Look," by Kari Sutoski of the Association to Reduce Alcohol Promotion in Ontario." In her introduction she writes, "Many people are concerned that alcohol advertising and promotion poses a public health risk. Alcohol is not like bread and milk. When misused, it can have negative consequences-- for drinkers and for society. These consequences range from affected relationships to preventable crashes, injuries, drownings and violence. Rarely do these consequences show up in the fun and carefree world of alcohol ads."
