Drinking and driving: It doesn’t take much alcohol to impair a person’s
ability to drive. The chances of being killed in a single-vehicle crash
are increased at a blood alcohol level that a 140-lb. woman would
reach after having one drink on an empty stomach.
Medication interactions: Alcohol can interact with a wide variety of
medicines, both prescription and over-the-counter. Alcohol can

The CAPRI model is an agricultural sector model covering the whole of EU-27, Norway and
Western Balkans at regional level (250 regions) and global agricultural markets at country or

The health of the mother has a profound effect on the health of her children.

transmitted across generations.
The function of the Basal Ganglia is a subject of increasing prominence, not only among neuroanatomists, neurobiologists, cognitive-scientists and psychiatrists, but also among clinical ergonomists, rehabilitation, internal medicine and public health medics. This volume is the first of its kind. Scientists of diverse backgrounds join to explore issues about the Basal Ganglia from multiple angles. Basal Ganglia - An Integrative View explores the Basal Ganglia from diverse perspectives, sometimes as starting point others as end of diverse pathologies....
Specialist treatments for alcohol problems are effective. A health technology assessment from
NHS Quality Improvement Scotland concluded that specialist services are effective for relapse
prevention if offering behavioural self control training, motivational enhancement therapy, family
therapy/community reinforcement approach and/or coping/communication skills training (see
Yet, not enough countries use these and other effective policy options to prevent death,
disease and injury attributable to alcohol consumption. Since 1999, when WHO ﬁ rst
began to report on alcohol policies, at least 34 countries have adopted some type of
