To a certain extent, it’s a mystery why people hurt and kill each other. If it weren’t, we’d have figured out a way to stop it long ago. But as researchers learn more and more about crime, some helpful practical interventions to reduce it are emerging. One of them is strikingly simple: Make a substance that greatly increases the risk people will commit or be victimized by acts of violence — yup, alcohol — a bit more expensive.
A team from Cardiff University writing in the journal Injury Prevention state that thousands of hospital visits could be cut across England and Wales every year, though they did also state that cutting the deficiencies between the rich and the poor
