Hope, Ann (2014) ‘Lead us not into temptation’: adolescence and alcohol policy in Europe. Alcohol and Alcoholism , 49 , (2) , pp. 126-127.

Although the World Health Organization and the European Community recognize harm to children and young people due to alcohol—whether their own or someone else’s drinking effective policies to reduce harm are not widely followed. The alcohol beverage industry’s drive to use social networking systems blurs the line between user-generated and industry marketing materials, such that young people are more frequently and at a younger age, potentially exposed to the promotion of alcoholic drinks. This contravenes recommendations arising out of the emerging scientific literature that delaying the onset of drinking and reducing the prevalence of heavy session drinking are likely to promote a healthier next generation.
