From Nine To Noon, 11:35 am on 14 April 2020

While coping with the lockdown might have you reaching for the wine - or something stronger - George Seber would caution against that. He's an Emeritus Professor of Statistics at Auckland University and has crunched the numbers on the harm caused by the $4b New Zealanders spend on alcohol each year. His book, co-authored with his friend Dr Graeme Woodfield, is called 'Alcohol: A Dangerous Love Affair' and looks at how even moderate amounts can still have adverse health effects.
