Should alcohol come with information about calories?
31st October 2014

Doctors are calling for bottles of alcohol to come with information about calarie content to help reduce obesity.

An average glass of wine has around 200 calories, which is the same as a doughnut.

The Royal Society for Public Health say many people aren't aware of such figures and if they did were, would make better choices regarding what they drink.

Duncan Stephenson from the Royal Society for Public Health and Charlie Cooper, health correspondent from the Independent discuss the matter.
