RWJF moves on to its next fight....to eliminate alcohol consumption across the globeIn this grant research study the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation concludes:
Alcohol's contribution to global disease and disability exceeds that of tobacco, and its contribution to disability outstrips both malnutrition and occupational hazards.
They also note:
While alcohol provides employment and revenue, it also imposes considerable costs to societies .........
Thus, just as RWJF was happy to eliminate jobs in the hospitality industry by funding smoking bans.........it also has no compunction to eliminating jobs created and / or dependent upon the adult beverage industry.
To the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) the ends justifies the means, especially if it sells more pharmaceutical products for its parent company the Johnson & Johnson Company. RWJF owns 80,000,000 shares of Johnson & Johnson Co. stock, a $5.4 billion dollar stake.
