Title New study shows men severely underestimate the harm caused by heavy drinking Media name/outlet ABC News Sydney Country/Territory Australia Date 4/03/19 Description Pre-recorded interview with Emma Saleeba, manager of alcohol and tobacco, VicHealth. Carvalho reports a new study shows
men severely underestimate the harm caused by heavy drinking. Saleeba remarks they found that there were many men who
believe risk begins at 10 or more drinks, a few who believe 30 drinks is alright and fewer who believe there is no amount of
drinks that is risky. She says they sought help from Monash University, which interviewed men in social groups in Victoria. She
adds many men believe drinking is part of culture, though they are not comfortable with it. Saleeba explains some 67% of
alcohol-related ambulance callouts in Melbourne are for men. She states taking five or more drinks increases the risk of injury.
