Don is up to his old tricks, playing on peoples fears in order to push the message that drinking is evil and so should be banned.
He turns up like a zit on a teen in The Telegraph claiming that 24 hour drinking is to blame for increasing cancer rates.
Don happily chirps his banning message, yes the Alcohol Concern quango chief executive Don Shenker said: "Many people are not aware of the connection between alcohol and cancer yet it can be a major contributor or cause of the disease."
Yes Don, its right up there with smoking, pollution and just plain bad luck. Maybe Don would care to ban people from drinking very hot tea as a study shows there may well be a risk of that causing cancer.
Or maybe the drug fosamax as this site suggests.
Plus of course another study suggested that folk who engaged in lots of oral sex were also in danger, so no more getting down in front of Gordon Brown and the NHS directors for funding Mr Shenker as it's bad for your health. I don't see Don seeking to ban that!
In fact the exact causes of cancer are often unknown, having known a few people die of that other than some guess on the part of the medical establishment as to the causes they really can not say; other than an educated guess.
A more reliable source that a state funded quango had this to say on mouth and throat cancer:
In some cases the exact cause of cancer is not known. However, the primary cause of mouth and throat cancer is smoking. People who drink excess alcohol are also at risk and when mixed with tobacco use, their chance of developing cancer is much greater.
Still playing the fear card and grasping at every straw in order to put across the Government message, something this fake charity do in order to maintain their non-jobs and continued funding is all Don is good for.
