TO THE EDITOR: Alcohol misuse is one of the leading causes of preventable death, illness and injury in Australia because too many Australians drink too much alcohol too often. The evidence is clear on what are the most effective strategies to curb alcohol misuse at a population level. By far the most effective of these is increasing the price of alcohol by increasing alcohol taxes.
