Industrial Epidemics: Tobacco and Alcohol
An epidemic associated with the commercialisation of a dangerous product is known as an ‘industrial epidemic’. This theme covers the impacts of the consumption of commercial products, with a focus on alcohol and tobacco. We have expertise in evaluating community-based interventions to address alcohol harm, and a strong track record in research on the consequences of alcohol consumption during pregnancy (Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, FASD). The work under this theme funded by the National Institute for Health Research, the Medical Research Council, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council and Salford City Council.
