Schools are using “misleading and biased” information materials funded by the alcohol industry to educate pupils as young as nine about drinking, according to a study.
Teachers in thousands of UK schools employ lesson plans, factsheets and films produced by bodies with close ties to the drinks trade even though they “portray alcohol as a normal consumer product to impressionable young minds”, the researchers found.
but i don’t understand … why would the alcohol industry seek to do this if alcohol is a perfectly harmless substance?
quick! better look for some jewish family names so we can blame everything on the tribe!
They conclude: “All programmes promoted familiarisation and normalisation of alcohol as a ‘normal’ adult consumer product, which children must learn about and master how to use responsibly when older.”
The materials also “employ selective presentation of harms, including misinformation about cancer.” Some misleadingly imply that only heavy or excessive drinking raises the risk of the disease, whereas research shows low levels of drinking also increases the risk of some types such as breast and mouth cancer, they say.
looks like our resident scientist has been brainwashed with the same misinformation! those darned brewer families!
