Abstract

In numerous reports the BMA has put forward evidence-based recommendations to help to improve and protect the nation’s health in relation to alcohol misuse, tobacco and obesity. This position statement sets out the ethical arguments underpinning BMA policy on these behaviour-related public health problems in the context of the current coalition government’s approach.
