Description:

The Irish Medical Organisation (IMO) has petitioned the Government to introduce explicit health warnings on alcohol pro-ducts. The doctorsâ?T union believes the labels should include alcohol gram content rather than the traditional units of alcohol so that individuals understand the actual amount they are consuming. As well as warning of the dangers of drink-driving, the labels should also give the calorie content of the drink, as a â?~considerable proportion of Irish adult calorie intake is in the form of alcoholâ?T, the IMO said.
