Experts: Both Men & Women Should Only Have One Alcoholic Drink Per Day


Experts now suggest that both men and women should limit their drinking to one alcoholic beverage per day.

The previous guidance allowed for men to drink more than one per day... for some reason... but now we are all equal! Are you excited?

This new guidance comes via the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which are scheduled to be updated later this year for the first time in five years.

“As a nation, our collective health would be better if people generally drank less,” said Dr. Timothy Naimi, an alcohol researcher at Boston University and one of the experts on the committee.

"One drink" means about one 12-ounce can of beer, a 5-ounce glass of wine or a shot of liquor.
