Tobacco, Food and Alcohol

Growing interest in the relationship between corporate strategies employed by tobacco, food and alcohol to address (and thwart) public health concerns.

In an article entitled "Profits and Pandemics", Rob Moodie et al suggest: "There is now evidence to show that the food, drink, and alcohol industries use similar tactics and strategies to the tobacco companies to undermine public health interventions."

At last count, the story of the article was retweeted 92 times on #ncd13 (non communicable diseases).
