WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION CALLS FOR WOMEN OF CHILD BEARING AGE TO TO BE BANNED FROM DRINKING ALCOHOL

Sharing is Caring!

Women of childbearing age should be banned from drinking alcohol, says the World Health Organisation.

Its latest Global Alcohol Action Plan calls on countries to raise awareness of alcohol-related harm and its harmful use.

A first draft of the plan says ‘appropriate attention’ should be given to the prevention of drinking in children, pregnant women and women of childbearing age.

Last night the drinks industry described the proposal as paternalistic and sexist

The draft guidance warns that booze is associated increased disease, poor mental health, violence, lost productivity and strained relationships.

And it adds: ‘One of the most dramatic manifestations of harm to persons other than drinkers is pre-natal alcohol exposure and the development of foetal alcohol spectrum disorders.’

Symptoms in children exposed to alcohol in the womb can include poor growth, distinct facial features and learning and behavioural problems. The plan suggests such harms could be publicised through an international ‘world no alcohol day/week’.
