Increased Alcohol Prices May Decrease Deaths

Source: RTT News

A drop in alcohol related deaths may be linked to increased prices, says a new study from researchers at University of Victoria's Centre for Addictions Research of British Columbia.

For the study, researchers collected data in British Columbia between 2002 and 2009. They found that a ten percent price increase in government controlled alcohol retailers led to a 32 percent drop in reported alcohol related deaths.

"This study adds to the scientific evidence that, despite popular opinion to the contrary, even the heaviest drinkers reduce their consumption when minimum alcohol prices increase. It is hard otherwise to explain the significant changes in alcohol-related deaths observed in British Columbia," says lead researcher Tim Stockwell.

Their data appears this month in the journal Addiction.

Butts are going UP in price.

Why NOT alcohol, there is no doubt higher prices would reduce use.

Just do it..

And it was a test flight to see what happens and collect some data.(which actually makes sense) The entire fleet is still grounded and in fact, according to this article, the test flight was not approved by the FAA.

Really ??? You realize FAA=Federal Aviation Administration... right ?

The Federal Aviation Administration ***will*** permit Boeing to test flights of the 787 Dreamliner to gather more data on the lithium ion battery that have become the focus of an investigation after the jets were grounded last month.

"Man", you're certainly too right to read it, huh ?

Meaningless data. Distilled spirit sales in the US had their second consecutive growth year and now account for over 1/3rd of all sales when combined with wine and beer. And yet according to the latest stats, 2011 was the lowest number of traffic deaths since they started counting that stat.

Regarding alcohol related traffic deaths read this quote.

"Since NHTSA began recording alcohol-related statistics in 1982, drunk driving fatalities have decreased 52% from 21,113 in 1982. Since the inception of The Century Council and our national efforts to fight drunk driving, drunk driving fatalities have declined 35% from 15,827 in 1991."

Like I said totally meaningless data.

Correction. It was not considered a "test flight" but rather a "ferry flight" and was indeed approved by the FAA.

"The FAA approved that special flight under certain conditions. There were no passengers and the crew had to continuosly monitor the lithium ion battery that has caused the 787 problems."

My bad.

Hey, you're wrong, senile, gay, and posting to the wrong thread... Lots of other morons, have bad lives....

Of course, your "news" is OUT OF DATE,TOO DUMB*SS ~!

he US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has allowed Boeing to carry out test flights of 787 Dreamliner planes.

The entire fleet of 787s was grounded last month after a battery on one plane caught fire, while a malfunction forced another to make an emergency landing.

Regulators as well as Boeing have been conducting probes to find out what caused the incidents.

The FAA said the test flights will help collect data about battery performance "while the aircraft is airborne".

The terminally slewpid, low information, low integrity poster simply cannot accept the fact that someone might actually admit they made a mistake.
But that's to be expected from one who is low information, low integrity, and makes statements such as these:
