Special Issue Information
Alcohol is often perceived as an underrated risk factor for human health. The aim of this Special Issue is to correct misperceptions and misinformation by providing up to date reviews and publications that consider the impact of alcoholic beverages on human health in the domains of toxicity, carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, foetal toxicity, neurotoxicity, impacts of alcohol on the gastrointestinal system (including nutrient deficiencies), cardiovascular system, injuries, body weight, and communicable diseases. Whilst it is the aim that the bulk of the papers cover issues of impact on health, reviews and papers should also address how the impact of alcohol on human health can be mitigated—for example, improved labelling on nutrients and health warnings, better policy measures, and actions by alcohol producers on their products through reformulation to lower alcoholic strength.
We aim for a state-of-the art Special Issue that describes in full the harm that alcohol can have on human health, and the measures that can be put in place to mitigate harm.
Prof. Dr. Peter Anderson
