France: alcoholic drinks need health warnings
France has already approved warning labels aimed at pregnant women,
  following evidence that 700 French children were born with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome in 2001
.  

HEALTH MESSAGE ENVISAGED
"Drinking alcoholic beverages during pregnancy even in small quantities
can have grave/serious consequences for the health of the baby."

Health authorities in the UK, where binge-drinking rates are among the highest in Europe,
have also spent 2006 considering cigarette packet-style health warnings on alcoholic drinks.

The British Beer and Pub Association said it welcomed a standard message on all alcoholic drinks
that would help people to monitor their drinking habits, but rejected scare tactics.

The UK government last week launched a £4m alcohol awareness campaign, ‘Know Your Limits',
intended to encourage 16-24-year-olds to drink responsibly.
