British Columbia researcher Tim Stockwell, who works out of the University of Victoria, is convinced through his studies that the graphic warning labels on bottles of alcohol would curb problem and binge drinking.
“The more people drink, the more frequently they see the label, the more likely they remember it, so it’s actually a good medium to getting information to the heaviest drinkers,” claims Stockwell.
He claims that right now he’s working with a government somewhere in Canada that is interested in slapping these labels on a bottle of wine, but he won’t say which one!
John Clerides of the B.C. Wine Institute calls it “just another layer of government bureaucracy and interference on a growing industry.”
Do you think it’s about time we added these labels to bottles of rum, beer and fine wine?
Experts claim that 70% of Canadians do not know that alcohol is a risk factor for cancer. Is it time to inform the uneducated masses of this fact via graphic labels on the front of their bottle of Fuzion?
