One alcoholic drink a day more than enough
It is not the right time for this study, however the new guidelines recommend no more than one drink a day for both men and women.
These findings, published on Health.gov come at a time of stress highlighted by a growing pandemic.
The study found that two drinks had a higher risk of death from alcohol-related heart disease, cancer and car accidents than a single drink.
In 1990, a similar study suggested no more than two drinks a day for men and only one drink a day for women.
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse, a 350 milliliter beer, a 150 milliliter glass of wine or a 44 milliliter glass of other alcoholic beverage are the parameters that define a normal beverage.
