Focus On Links Between Alcohol And Cancer, Australia

Freitag 25. Juni 2010 von htm

AMA President, Dr Andrew Pesce, said today that more needs to be done to stop young people from taking up drinking at an early age, including banning alcohol advertising and promotions that are targeted at teenagers and adolescents. Dr Pesce said that excess alcohol consumption is known to be a contributor to cancer rates in Australia. The 2010 edition of Australia’s Health, released yesterday, showed that there are rising rates of cancer in the community and that cancer is the leading cause of disease burden in Australia.

Need For Urgent Action On Problem Drinking, Australia

Mittwoch 23. September 2009 von htm

Two new reports demonstrate the need for a comprehensive set of measures to be put in place to combat problem drinking, AMA President, Dr Andrew Pesce, said today.
The British Medical Association (BMA) recently released an expert report: „Under the Influence: The damaging effect of alcohol on young people“.
The report coincides with the release today of research by The National Drug Research Institute (NDRI) which shows that risky alcohol consumption caused the death of 32,696 Australians in the 10 years from 1996 to 2005, and 813,072 Australians were hospitalised due to alcohol-caused injury and disease over the same period. This is a 30% rise in alcohol-caused injury and disease in ten years, and the trend is set to continue, according to NDRI.

Australien: Gipfeltreffen zur TV Alkoholwerbung gefordert

Montag 6. April 2009 von htm

Die australische  Ärztevereinigung sagt, die Regierung müsse ein dringendes Gipfeltreffen zur Alkoholwerbung einberufen. AMA-Präsidentin Dr Rosanna Capolingua gratulierte der Spirituosenindustrie zu ihrem Beschluss, freiwillig die Fernsehwerbung während des Tages einzustellen, sagte aber, viel mehr sei nötig. „Wir müssen diese Verbindung zwischen Sportshelden und Alkohol unterbrechen“. „Das einzig annehmbare Ergebnis ist, dass es keine Alkoholwerbung mehr gibt zu Zeiten, wenn Kinder fernsehen.“ „Wenn die Alkoholindustrie nicht handelt – dann muss es die Regierung tun.“ (Quelle: Medical News Today, 5.4.09)

Urgent Summit Needed On Alcohol Advertising, Australia

Montag 6. April 2009 von htm

The Australian Medical Association says the government must call an urgent summit on alcohol advertising. AMA President, Dr Rosanna Capolingua, congratulated the distilling industry for its decision to voluntarily cease daytime television advertising, but said much more was needed. „We’ve got to break this link between sporting heroes and alcohol.“ „The only acceptable outcome is that there should be no alcohol advertising at times when children are watching.“ „If the alcohol industry won’t act – then government must.“ (Source: Medical News Today, 4/5/09)

Top News: Alcopopsteuern ersetzen Alkoholwerbung in Australien?

Freitag 27. März 2009 von htm

Die Australian Medical Association, AMA, empfiehlt, dass das Geld, welches mit der auslaufenden Alcopop-Steuer eingenommen wurde, versuchsweise verwendet werden sollte, um die Alkoholwerbung im Sport zu reduzieren. AMA Präsidentin Dr. Rosanna Capolingua sagte, es mache keinen Sinn, die total $340 Mio. der Alkoholindustrie zurückzugeben. „Dieses Geld sollte für einen guten Zweck eingesetzt werden. Es könnte einen sorgfältig evaluierten Versuch finanzieren, bei dem die Regierung Werbeflächen zurückkauft, die sonst von Alkoholwerbern während Sportveranstaltungen gebraucht würden – speziell während Zeiten, wenn Kinder zuschauen. … Der Einfluss der Alkoholwerbung im Sport ist real. Wir müssen die Verbindung zwischen dem australischen Zelebrieren des Sports, gesunden sportlichen Vorbildern und dem Alkohol aufbrechen.“ (Quelle: Medical News Today, 26.3.09) Kommentar: Die gleiche Idee ist bereits in unserer Projekt-Idee enthalten.

Top News: Alcopops Revenue Should Be for Advertising Buy-back Trial

Freitag 27. März 2009 von htm

The Australian Medical Association, AMA, recommends that the money raised by the failed alcopops tax should be spent on a trial buy-back to reduce alcohol advertising in sport. AMA President, Dr Rosanna Capolingua, said handing the money, $340 million in total, back to the liquor industry made no sense.
„This money should be put to good use. It could fund a carefully evaluated trial where government buys back advertising space that would otherwise be used by alcohol marketers during sporting events – particularly at times when children are watching. „The impact of alcohol advertising in sport is real. We need to break the connection between the Australian celebration of sport and healthy sporting role models and alcohol. (Source: Medical News Today, 3/26/09) Comment: This idea is also part of our project idea.
