The World Health Organization (WHO) report on Alcoholic Beverages, Dimensions of Corporate Power, was suppressed from publication primarily due to the exertion of commercial pressure. This article publishes portions of the WHO report reprinted from "The Globe," an international magazine on alcohol and drug problems, published in Sweden. The original report was the work of two WHO researchers, John Cavanagh and Frederick Clairmonte. After certain parts of the report were made public through the press, the WHO decided to withhold the manuscript from publication. Although the WHO would make no official statement on their reason for withholding the manuscript from publication, it is widely believed that their decision resulted from pressures from certain special interests in the countries most frequently mentioned in the report.
