, the way it was recently introduced in Scotland would also make sense for Austria, according to Michael Musalek, Medical Director at the Anton Proksch Institute in Vienna. There are many studies that show that lower availability – also through higher prices – lowers consumption, explained Musalek. But it should be accompanied by a social discussion.

When it comes to alcohol, Austria is a “master at trivializing,” stressed Musalek. “The dangers of alcohol consumption are downplayed,” said the expert. However, any intoxication results in massive damage to the nerves, among other things. In addition, the extremely high risk of addiction would be hidden.

“An ostracism is also to be rejected”

The introduction of a minimum price for alcohol should, however, be accompanied by a broad social discussion. “A problem awareness must be created once. An ostracism is also to be rejected,” said Musalek. A broad debate such as the one that has arisen about the overturning of the non-smoking law by the federal government would be welcome.

How high should the minimum price be?

How high a minimum price should be – in Scotland it is 57 cents per ten milliliters of pure alcohol – is of course up to the legislature. But it should already be “noticeable”. In particular, cheap alcohol and fusel, which is often consumed by young people, could disappear at all. Musalek also criticized the fact that alcoholic drinks are often cheaper in pubs than non-alcoholic ones. Again, a higher price could increase the acceptance of non-alcoholic beverages.

Given the discussion surrounding the

Alcohol ban at the Wiener Praterstern

But Musalek sees progress in Austria. “It would have been unthinkable ten years ago that 80 percent are in favor of a ban on alcohol at train stations,” said the expert. At that time only drug addiction was seen as a problem, “alcohol wasn’t even an issue”.

Rational use of alcohol required

Even in Austria, a beer and wine country, around three quarters of the people do not have one

Problem with alcohol

. But around 20 percent are at risk from harmful consumption, five percent are ill. Rational handling of alcohol consumption and help for those affected are the most important, it said on Friday at a press conference in Vienna.

The occasion was the presentation of a new guidebook “Alcohol – Between Enjoyment and Danger” in the series “Getting healthy.https://123helpme.me/ Staying healthy” by the main association of social insurance institutions. “A look at the epidemiological data shows that alcohol is a significant issue in society. 72 percent of people have no problem with alcohol consumption, nine percent are considered to be at risk of alcohol, five percent are alcohol-dependent,” said Alexander Hagenauer, Deputy General Director of the Main Association.

But if you know that male alcoholics have a life expectancy that is reduced by an average of 17 years and that female addicts even have a life expectancy that is reduced by 20 years, the important thing is to reduce diseases and mortality caused by excessive consumption. The awareness of those affected and their relatives must be increased, said Hagenauer.

Situation in Austria

The assessment of alcohol consumption is culturally very different. Epidemiology expert Alfred Uhl from Gesundheit Österreich GmbH (GÖG) referred above all to the differences in the western world according to Christian religious denominations: In Protestant-puritanist societies there is a tendency towards prohibition with demonizing alcohol consumption, in Catholic societies moderate use becomes neutral to positive seen, only excessive drinking rated negatively.

According to Uhl, the situation in Austria has rather improved over the past few decades: “Specifically, there was a constant increase in consumption after the Second World War until 1970. Since then it has fallen by around 20 percent (from an average of 15.3 liters of alcohol to around twelve Liter; note). ” But because the drinking quantities in the high-consumption countries Italy and France have been reduced even more, Austria would now find itself in the top field in a European comparison. Four percent of Austrians have no alcohol experience whatsoever, 61 percent consume small amounts, and another 14 percent have relatively unproblematic alcohol consumption.

“Don’t drink alcohol at least two days a week”

The discussion of limit values, which a few weeks ago a scientific study in the “Lancet” arose, is viewed relatively critically by the experts. Alcohol is definitely a cell poison, daily consumption often leads to the development of tolerance and could ultimately lead to problematic use and even addiction. It just depends on a rational use of alcohol. “Nobody can be advised to consume more than two beers or two quarters of wine a day,” said the volume’s lead author, Innsbruck psychiatrist Sergei Mechtcheriakov. The majority of Austrians, however, handled alcohol sensibly.

“We have to promote responsible alcohol consumption. (…) There is a lot in between addiction and abstinence,” said co-author Lisa Brunner, head of the Institute for Addiction Prevention in Vienna. In any case, there is no such thing as a “health-promoting” amount of alcohol. When it comes to alcohol consumption, psychologically it is always about reinforcing or avoiding feelings. Her simple advice: “Don’t drink alcohol at least two days a week.”
