ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of increased availability of alcohol on public health in Great Britain. Alcohol consumption had increased by 50 percent as a result of lower prices, advertisement using young people, and lesser restriction. The 70 percent of hospital admission had come from accidents related to alcohol. Alcohol had accounted to the 17 million working days lost which amounted to 6.4 billion pounds.
