UK lowers recommended max drinking levels

8/1/2017
Men and women have been advised not to drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week, and to spread their drinking over three days or more days rather than consuming all 14 units in one or two drinking sessiions. Dry days (alcohol free ) every week have also been recommended. This brings the male drinking level down from previous 21 units. The guidelines also advise pregnant women to abstain from alcohol completely.

Drinking over recommended limit 'raises cancer risk'

Drinking more than a pint of beer a day can substantially increase the risk of some cancers, research suggests.The Europe-wide study of 363,988 people reported in the British Medical Journal found one in 10 of all cancers in men and one in 33 in women were caused by past or current alcohol intake. More than 18% of alcohol-related cancers in men and about 4% in women were linked to excessive drinking. The Department of Health said it was taking action to reduce drinking. Cancer charities say people should limit their drinking to lower the risk. BBC News http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-12999000

We received this question & photo today by e-mail :
Just received replacement professional mouthpieces which appear smaller than the previous professional mouthpieces we bought from you.. Are these suitable for use with the AL7000 ?

Answer : Yes they are smaller. We had to change manufacturer and this is our new stock. The larger ones have all gone. They key feature of the professional breathlyzer mouth piece is that it has a one way uni-directional valve which means that the breathalyser can not be cheated or triggered by sucking instead of blowing. The new professional breathalyser mouthpieces are compatible with the AL7000 digital breathalyser and also with the AL6000 and DA5000 digital breathalysers.

Changes to drug driving law in UK & roadside drug drive test kIts

12/1/2016
New laws that enable the UK police to perform roadside drug tests on drivers they suspect of being under the influence of drugs in a similar way to the way they can breathalyse drunk drivers came into effect in 2015. It is hoped the new roadside drug testing will be a deterrant to drivers driving while under the influence in the same way the breathalyser test has reduced drink driving. Some of the drugs that may be tested for include prescription drugs that can impair driving ability. In the early stages of the new test it is likely that the police will just test for Cannabis and Cocaine at the roadside.

The drink drive limit for novice drivers has been reduced in France

Last month France reduced the drink drive limit for novice drivers from 0.05% BAC to 0.02%.

The drink drive level is now the same level as that applied to bus & coach drivers.

Police federation call for lowering of drink drive limit for England , Wales and Northern Ireland

Police federation call for lowering of drink drive limit for England , Wales and Northern Ireland

26/6/15
At the recent police federation conference in the UK in May 2015 the police force called for the UK government to lower the drink drive limit in line with Scotland's lower limit of 0.05% BAC ( 50mg of alcohol in 100ml ) The current rate for England, Wales and Northern Ireland is 0.08% BAC ( 80mg of alcohol in 100ml ) Most of Europe now uses the lower limit and this would bring the rest of UK in line with the rest of Europe.
We believe it is likely this will happen soon, as the UK now stands alone in Europe in having the higher drink drive limit. The alarms on the digital breathalysers that we stock are set to the lower level of 0.05% BAC.
For this reason we are only holding small stocks of the 0.08% BAC single use disposable breathalyzer kits at any one time. If you are buying these breathalyser test kits currently, we would advise you to purchase the lower level of 0.05% BAC or even 0.02% BAC in the future, or purchase the test and drive kits as these have all three levels on them.

Increased seasonal demand for digital breathalysers

10/12/14
At this time of year we always see an increase in the demand for digital breathalysers as well as single use breathalyser kits as both can make a useful gift. This year the demand has exceeeded supply with many of the digital breathalysers selling out in the last couple of weeks. We think the extra increase in demand this year may be partly to do with Scotland lowering the drink driving limit to 0.05% BAC at the beginning of December, and the resultant media coverage of the topic, which for us coinsided with a surge in sales of 0.05% BAC breathalysers. Talking to other breathalyser suppliers in the UK they to have noticed an increased demand this year on previous years and have sold out of many models of digital breathalyser. We have more digital breathalysers currently in manufacture and they we expect them to be delivered to us between Christmas & New Year. As soon as they are back in stock we will make them avaialble to purchase online.

Alcohol News

23/9/11
Alcohol concern Cymru has this week warned drinkers to avoid mixing alcohol with energy drinks. Energy drinks have become increasingly popular recently and in some pubs are being used as mixers for spirits. The problem is that the caffeine in these drinks can mask some of the effects of the alcohol making drinkers think they are less drunk than they actually are. Also caffeine and alcohol are both diuretics and can cause severe dehydration when used in combination.

The Best Breathalyser for under 100.00

The Best Breathalyser for under £100.00

12/9/08
Modern breathalyser design trends are all towards pre-calibrated, clip in clip out sensor units. These offer the very real advantage of never having to send the breathalyser for repeated calibration services, which for some very frequent testers could be as frequent as 2-3 months. Without service or replacement the accuracy of the breathalyser is lost over time and testing.

Our recommended best buy in this price range is the AL7000 Breathalyser, sold in North America as the Alcomate Phoenix Breathalyser, European models are unbranded AL7000 breathalysers but the design and features are identical.

Accuracy is directed towards lower alcohol level detection with manufacturers quoted +/-0.005% BAC at 0.050% BAC reducing to +/- 0.01% BAC at 0.010%BAC. This makes it an ideal breathalyser for users expecting and wishing to measure in the 0.000 to 0.050 levels of alcohol in blood and requiring high confidence and accuracy within this band (current UK HSE level at time of writting is 0.020%BAC so this includes most employment testers)
The AL7000 Breathalyser also incorporates comprehensive flow checking technology to ensure readings are only displayed for adequate 5 second deep breath samples. (indicates FLO is not met)

Error and sensor testing are also in-built with the AL7000 indicating error codes specific for fast diagnostic correction. The AL7000 breathalyser also indicates to the user total numer of tests conducted and will instruct you when a replacement sensor is required.

The AL7000 Breathalyser was introduced in 2007 and is expected to be in production for between 5 and 8 years. All consumables for this breathalyser should be available for at least 10 years.

Common fixes

Display Err2 = sensor loose fix = reposition sensor
Display FLO = not blowing for a full 5 second period
Display Sen = replace sensor

The AL7000 breathalyser features an integral Prism sensor, the most modern and reportedly most robust semi-conductor sensor on the market. The AL7000 also has the easiest to change sensor access of any breathalyser, making sensor changes, fast and simple via a door on the reverse of the breathalyser, (no screws or catches to release)

The calibration stability of Prism sensors is the best of all semi-conductor sensors and spare sensors can be purchased with the digital breathalyser with confidence that they should not deteriorate prior to installation.

Other consumables include a choice of standard mouth piece tubes and professional uni-directional valve mouth pieces. The professional mouth pieces also help reduce contamination and blockage of the airflow, entending sensor life expectancy.

Which is the Best Breathalyser below £50 ?
Perhaps the commonest asked question of our tele-sales department, and frankly the range and array of digital breathalysers on offer today is confusing. No one breathalyser offers everything to consumers and the basic law of economics prevails, the more you pay the more electronics and accuracy tends to result, but there are some exceptions, and many older breathalyser units are still being marketed which no longer make the grade.

The best breathalyser in the sub £50 retail market is currently the DA5000 Digital Breathalyser It offers 5 second deep breath sampling, flow checking, a robust semicon changeable sensor and re-usable mouth pieces. It offers all the accuracy a self testing consumer needs and meets the standards required for a low cost business screening device.

In 2007 the DA5000 replaced the identical looking AL5000. DA5000 breathalysers have now been in use for over 18 months and the model continues to offer one of the best value breathalyser packages available internationally. DA5000 spares and consumable should be available for at least 10 years so potential consumers can buy with confidence.

Guide to low alcohol booze

23/8/08
Read a very interesting article and thought I would share it with you. It is by John Naish from The Times August 23, 2008 . There are some very useful recomendations for low alcohol drinks to try. Below is an exeprt from the article. You can read the full article at Times online
https://login.thetimes.co.uk/?gotoUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thetimes.co.uk%2Ftto%2Flife%2Ffood%2F

'We're all told to drink less but finding tasty lower-strength wine and beer is tougher than you think '
There are many ways to make a barman eye you suspiciously, but one of the most effective is to ask him whether he stocks moderately alcoholic beer. Not non-alcoholic, just low. Moderation in all things may be a virtue, but it's damned difficult in our culture of rocket-fuel booze, as I found on my attempt to spend a week drinking only wine with single-figure alcohol content and beer with less than 4 per cent.

Why the mission? I'm a gregarious creature who believes that time spent socialising in bars is never wasted. And I enjoy having a good libation while holding forth. But that doesn't make me a drunk. I'd begun to notice, however, how in recent years my hangovers have worsened and my pre-slurring capacity has shrunk shomewhat. I blamed this on advancing age - until I started looking at the labels.

Over the past 20 years the alcohol levels of our drinks have steadily spiralled. Consumer culture, with its promise that more of anything is always better, has boosted the befuddling powers of our booze, to the point where one small 330ml bottle of Carlsberg lager can be enough to put a woman over her government-recommended limit of three units a day.'

Doctors target cheap booze as Tesco makes 'U-turn' from Times Online

Doctors target cheap booze as Tesco makes 'U-turn'
21 February 2008 Times Online Philippe Naughton
The UK's two biggest supermarket groups were in open competition today to talk tough on binge drinking as leading doctors called for stronger Government action against the "epidemic" of alcohol abuse. Tesco, the market leader, said that its chief executive, Sir Terry Leahy – described by one Labour MP last December as "the godfather of British binge drinking" – had personally discussed the issue with the Prime Minister and promised to work with others in the industry to tackle the problem.
Tesco pointed out that competition law prevented retailers from any discussion of prices between themselves, meaning that Government would have to take the lead in developing "responsible pricing" policies.
But only hours after Tesco issued a statement on the issue, Asda, the country's No 2 supermarket group, announced that it was ready to unveil and go ahead with its own measures against under-age drinking without any need for lengthy debate.
In a hard-hitting study released today, the British Medical Association said that Britain was "in the midst of an epidemic" of alcohol abuse.
The BMA pointed to alarming statistics on how much UK youngsters, particularly teenage girls, drink. British teenagers are among the most likely in Europe to report heavy drinking and being intoxicated


One drink and you’re over !

15/6/07
'One drink and you’re over: drivers face lower limit to cut road deaths' Ben Webster, Transport Correspondent The Times June 15, 2007
Motorists could find themselves over the alcohol limit after just one drink under a proposal to bring Britain’s drink-drive law into line with the rest of Europe.
The Government is considering lowering the limit from 80mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood to 50mg and later this year will publish a consultation paper to gauge opinion. With a 50mg limit, most people would be able to consume only one 175ml glass of standard-strength wine or half a pint of strong beer and remain legally fit to drive.
The Department for Transport has rejected calls by the British Medical Association and the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) for a lower limit. It wanted police to focus on those well over the existing limit, who were most likely to cause a crash.
But ministers have been embarrassed by a series of studies showing that Britain is lagging behind the rest of Europe in tackling drink-driving. All the other main European countries have lowered their limits either to 50mg or 20mg. The Irish Republic and Luxembourg are still on 80mg but have indicated that they will move to 50mg.
The number of people killed in drink-drive crashes in Britain has risen by more than a fifth in the past seven years, from 460 in 1999 to 560 in 2005. Over the same period, Germany and the Netherlands have reduced drink-drive deaths by more than 50 per cent.
Research by University College London found that lowering the limit to 50mg would prevent an estimated 65 deaths and 230 injuries a year in Britain. It would also save the economy £119 million a year by reducing medical costs and lost working time.
