What is Moderate Drinking or Alcohol Consumption?
Here is a comparison of what some different countries' guidelines are on "moderate" drinking. (Vive la France!)
The U.S. gov't says moderate drinking is one drink a day for women, and two per day for men. Who has one drink at a time? What if I have seven on saturday night?
Canada seems to have a little more sensible view: no more than nine drinks a week for women, 14 a week for men, no more than two at a time.
It looks like moderate drinkers (however you define them) also have a lower risk for developing type II diabetes.
Now, where was that bottle of Pinot Noir I've been saving . . .
