Alcohol Questions and Answers (Q&A)

If an alcoholic drink is a legal product, it should be legally possible for it to be advertised. Bans on alcohol advertising, according to the alcohol and advertising industries, would have damaging effects on the alcohol market and on the media. They also argue that bans are not justified as advertising is concerned with promoting sales of individual brands, and they believe there is no evidence of a causal link between advertising and the overall level of alcohol consumption or the amount of alcohol-related harm.

Promoting brands, recruiting new drinkers and increasing sales among existing consumers, however, are the important things advertisers care about, according to those who are against the marketing of alcohol. Intensive advertising and promotion of alcohol appears to sanction and legitimize use of a product which causes high levels of damage to individuals and society.

Alcohol advertising appears to be one-sided, avoiding any reference to the negative elements of alcohol consumption. It’s also necessary to enable alcohol to compete against other alternative drugs as well as soft drinks. There is some evidence that bans on alcohol advertising can have beneficial effect on the level of harm, at least in the longer term.

Curious about the World

Most people think the word "alcohol" is the same as "liquor" but this is not the case. In fact, people use them interchangeably because they think these words mean the same thing. However, alcohol and liquor are far from being the same. Alcohol is a chemical term that describes an organic compound. It contains a hydroxyl functional group. An example of this is ethanol. Alcohol is a clear liquid at room temperature.

It is not as dense in nature. Alcohol dissolves easily in water. It is also highly flammable. It is dangerous to consume alcohol in its raw form as it is highly toxic to the human body. Liquor, on the other hand refers to distilled alcoholic beverage. Liquor is made by the process of distilling fermented grain. The term ‘liquor’ comes from the Latin term ‘liquere’ which means ‘to be fluid.’ Hope you find this useful.

Over the years, scientific research, health agencies and universities have been able to demonstrate a correlation between alcohol beverage advertising and alcohol consumption, especially among initially non-drinking youth.

That increased awareness of alcohol messages amongst young people may lead to earlier drinking, higher consumption and increased harm, and those factors should be addressed through stronger marketing regulation.

However, there is an equally significant body of research positing that alcohol advertising does not cause higher consumption and rather merely reflects greater public demand, with many commentators suggesting that effective alcohol campaigns only increase a producer's market share and also brand loyalty.

The alcohol industry has tried to actively mislead the public about the risk of cancer due to alcohol consumption, in addition to campaigning to remove laws that require alcoholic beverages to have cancer warning labels. Currently, the standard is that alcohol advertisements can only be placed in media where 70% of the audience is over the legal drinking age.

While having an occasional drink is normally an enjoyable experience, it can cause major health risks such as seizures. When taking anti-epileptic drugs or if someone has epilepsy, heavy drinking is not suggested. Anti-epilepsy drugs (AEDs) can exaggerate the side effects of alcohol and make yor body more sensitive to the alcohol, making it easier to get drunk off of fewer alcoholic drinks.

After heavy drinking, AEDs can cause your body to have “withdrawl seizures” that can begin within 7 to 72 hours. Binge drinking can cause seizures even amongst people who are not epileptic, but the seizures are not caused by “withdrawl”, but rather the toxic effects of alcohol.

The only time that you can call a Scottish Whiskey a Scottish Whiskey is if it comes from Scotland. It should have been produced there and matured there. The Scottish Whiskey is distilled twice while the Irish Whiskey is distilled three times. The type of materials that are used for the two is also very different.

The Scotch Whiskey makes use of wholly malted barley while the Irish Whiskey makes use of kiln-dried grain. The materials that are used will give these two types of Whiskey the type of taste that people may want. This explains why there are some people who prefer a certain type of Whiskey over another.

Tequila is an alcohol that is made primarily in Mexico among other places. However, there are two different kinds of Tequila. They are known as Anejo and reposado. They are made from the agave plant. The meanings of the two words are different.

Anejo means aged, whereas reposado means rested. Most wines and other alcohols like Tequila must be rested before they are served. This means that they must stay in the bottle for a certain period of time before the bottle should be opened and served. There are two different resting periods for these two tequilas. Anejo rests for one to three years, and reposado rests for a shorter period of two months to a year. It should not rest any longer than one year.

Prohibition was a major event in the US occurring in 1919. The Eighteenth Amendment prohibited the manufacture, sale and transportation of intoxicating beverages, However, it did not outlaw the possession or consumption of alcohol. Bearing in mind that males aged 18-25 would likely be the main risk category, most of this age group had been touched by WW1 and a significant proportion of these may have been traumatised.

Turning to alcohol to suppress distressing images could be predicted. The amendment became the law of the land. The effects? In the first year after this became law, the number of crimes committed in 30 major cities in the U.S. increased by 24%. A similar increase occurred for arrests for drunkenness and disorderly conduct. Arrests for drunken driving jumped by 81%. The latter particularly was a severely negative outcome of prohibition.

Religious groups in the US led the country in a belief that poverty, crime, physical abuse and child neglect all stemmed from excessive use of alcohol. Abstinence was seen as godliness. Proponents of abolition saw their first step as prohibition: if they could prevent alcohol reaching the populace, drinking would stop and then so would the crisis.

It was a naiive view that alcohol was the major cause of most personal and social problems/ The abolitionists were joined by the women's suffrage movement. Domestic abuse probably increased their desire to stop men drinking. Prohibition didn't work well. Producing alcohol in the US reduced commercially. People could drink privately and at home, and there was no law stopping them from making their own alcohol, which they did.
