According to a post on TheGuardian.com the Royal Australasian  College Physicians Congress 2016 will see physicians from over 30 medical specialities hold more than 100 sessions, workshops and presentations. The physicians will also call on all political parties to drastically increase the tax on cheap alcohol.

The college is asking politicians to commit during elections to doing more to combat lifestyle diseases linked to drinking, obesity and smoking.

Laureate Professor Nicholas Talley called on politicians to implement volumetric tax on alcohol. This would ultimately do away with very cheap alcohol which is comonly abused especialyby young people and those dependent on it.

The physicians are also calling for changes to alcohol advertising in sport.
