Prevent the shotgun weddings of alcohol and war, alcohol and death, alcohol and disease, alcohol and violence

The biggest breweries in the United States are heavy contributors to the current regime, and through their cash influence have gotten several radio networks to promote alcohol consumption ads as early as 11 am on weekdays. Coors and Anheuser Busch are 2 major alcohol marketers. In addition the alcohol industry, says MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, is marketing to youth. Many soldiers returning from war attempt to tune out the hideous violence witnessed through alcohol and drugs. Alcoholism related depression generates billions in multinational pharmaceutical medications. Fraternities, restaurants, and corporate media promote alcohol consumption for reasons such as peer pressure and money. Sometimes, even the sight of someone drinking on tv or a description of this in a book is enough to kick the viewer or reader off of years of abstinence. The Salvation Army over 100 years ago treated alcoholism through vegetarian diet, since the excess yang of meat was offset by the excess yin of booze. However, the Army has gotten away from its vegetarian roots. Many Adventists treat alcoholism with vegetarian diet. There are virtually no vegetarian alcoholics because .. the biochemistry of non animal eaters is less acidic..  link to www.aa.org Coors funded the Heritage Foundation which has countless times promoted war on National Public Radio and other war profiteer controlled media. Through its connection to organized sports, Coors has arranged that every time a Denver stadium is mentioned, it gets a free ad. In addition, Coors pays for placement in books marketed by Rupert Murdoch's HarperCollins and others. Coors was a factor in Diebold's theft of the Colorado senate race.

was unconscious... he was saved from kidney shutdown
and from choking on his vomit.

"At the punch-bowl's brink, let the thirsty think, what they say in Japan: first the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man!"
