Youth, alcohol, and social policy by Howard T Blane( Book )

11 editions published in 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anxiety about "alcohol and youth" has been excited by shocking events and reports. Events are exemplified by multiple deaths of adolescents in automobile crashes after drinking parties. Reports are exemplified by the conclusion, from a national survey, that more than one fourth of youngsters aged 13 to 18 are already problem drinkers. Response provoked by these events and reports has taken the form of proposed or enacted legislation in several states to raise the so-called legal drinking age from 18 to 19, or 20, or 21. The confusion around the alcohol-and-youth problem is manifest in the fact that no one can be sure that raising the legal drinking age will make any difference. The legislation may be tilting at windmills; and it is doubtful even that the windmills exist. (But the legislative windmills are whirling.) The confusion is clearly manifest in the fact that the legal drinking-age legislation does not deal with a drinking age

With mounds of solid evidence, the author shows the lies behind the facts about today's big issues (for instance, the "obesity epidemic" is the result of a change in bookkeeping in a federal agency, and the "global warming" evidence was used a generation ago to frighten people about "global cooling"). He encourages readers to look through the money-motivated fate of statistics and government controls and return to a strong attitude of personal responsibility

Alcohol and health : new knowledge by United States( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This second report to the Congress of the United States on Alcohol and Health concentrates on highlighting certain advances in knowledge gained about uses and misuses of alcohol in the last few years. It does not attempt to address all aspects of knowledge, and deliberately bypasses those areas in which new information may be developing but has not yet reached a sufficiently reportable level. This report offers: (1) an authoritative guide to understanding what scientists and scholars are currently studying and reporting, (2) a picture of current realities, and (3) a basis for thinking about problems related to alcohol and their possible solution. This publication is not an authoritative guide for solving moral issues which belong in the realm of personal decision. Emphasis is given to the important and expanding role of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, and its progress toward "programs for people." The legislative mandate for the states to produce a working, viable plan for the provision of alcoholism services has now been implemented in every state of the union, and this mandate is viewed as the most significant progress made in recent years to provide effective, quality treatment to every alcoholic person who needs it.
