With the new guidelines put into place in January we’re keen to find out how people are finding the changes. Have you been able to make the small changes, or are you not bothered by any government recommendations?
The last set of alcohol guidelines were released in 1995, although there has been updates since regarding drinking in pregnancy and young people. This is much welcomed update for world health experts and anyone concerned with how much drinking can affect their health.
The main point to take away from this recent update is that chief medical officers in the UK now say that new research has shown that even drinking a small amount can cause an increased risk of cancer. For this reason, the amount of alcohol you should consume a week has been reduced and it is now recommended that men and women have the same weekly intake of units per week.
