How drink can speed up the ageing process – a new phone app / Nicola Sturgeon

by on February 12, 2012 in Apps & Software, Marketing, Scotland

A phone app which illustrates the effect of alcoholon personal appearance aims to “shock people into drinking just a little bit less”, its creator has said.

 

 The Drinking Time Machine app, part of the Scottish Government’s alcohol behaviour campaign, shows users how drink can speed up the ageing process.

Consuming alcohol can give people poor skin, brittle nails and hair, disrupted sleep and poor mental health.

More serious problems can be caused long term, such as chronic liver disease, with one in 30 female deaths in Scotland linked to alcohol.

The app is available for free throughout February.
