Reprint. [First: Same Year] From the cover: “Everyone knows that alcohol, when taken to excess, can cause permanent physical harm. This new report by the Royal College of Physicians shows that no system in the body is immune to its effects. Separate sections describe the problems associated with the nervous system, the liver, the digestive system, the heart, the chest, blood pressure and endocrine function, and assess the latest evidence on how far alcohol can be held responsible. Also included are sections on the wider issues of alcohol consumption both in the UK and abroad, on its effects on children, women, and the family, on the relationship with accidents of all sorts, and particularly on the impact of alcohol excess at work. The Report discusses the current and future role of the medical profession in identifying and treating alcohol problems, and suggests ways to work towards more effective prevention in a wider social and governmental context. General practitioners, hospital doctors, nurses, health visitors, and other professionals concerned with alleviating alcohol-related problems will find here a clear and balanced guide to the effects of alcohol on our bodies. A Great and Crowing Evil makes a strong case for determined and sensible treatment of one of Britain’s most commonly abused drugs.”
