Chief Public Health Officer Releases a Report on Drinking Alcohol in Canada

"Drinking is such a normal part of life for many people however alcohol is not harmless," said Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Gregory Taylor. "I hope my report fosters a dialogue about alcohol's risks to health that may help Canadians pay closer attention to their drinking. While data shows us that the number of Canadians who drink is going down, there is still cause for concern as most people under-report how much they drink and therefore may not understand the risks to their health even at one drink per day." Click here for more.
