Resumen

SUREDA, Xisca; VILLALBI, Joan R.; ESPELT, Albert  y  FRANCO, Manuel. Living under the influence: normalisation of alcohol consumption in our cities. Gac Sanit [online]. 2017, vol.31, n.1, pp.66-68. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2016.07.018.

Harmful use of alcohol is one of the world's leading health risks. A positive association between certain characteristics of the urban environment and individual alcohol consumption has been documented in previous research. When developing a tool characterising the urban environment of alcohol in the cities of Barcelona and Madrid we observed that alcohol is ever present in our cities. Urban residents are constantly exposed to a wide variety of alcohol products, marketing and promotion and signs of alcohol consumption. In this field note, we reflect the normalisation of alcohol in urban environments. We highlight the need for further research to better understand attitudes and practices in relation to alcohol consumption. This type of urban studies is necessary to support policy interventions to prevent and control harmful alcohol use.
