    Now booze comes with warning labels...

    The Health Department has published regulations requiring container labels for alcoholic beverages to carry messages ‘highlighting the negative effects of alcohol consumption’.

    The regulations – published under the Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectant Act – are the outcome of lengthy consultations with the parties concerned to address the challenge of alcohol abuse, the department said. According to a report on the IoL site, the regulations will come into effect in the next 18 months, and the messages include: alcohol reduces driving ability, don't drink and drive; don't drink and walk on the road, you may be killed; alcohol increases your risk to personal injuries; alcohol is a major cause of violence and crime; alcohol abuse is dangerous to your health; drinking during pregnancy can be harmful to your unborn baby.

    Full report:

    And I'm just thinking to myself: unborn babies should not drink...

    Duncan and I noticed the funny side here and suggested a few other options to put as possible consequences.
