Drinkers should have at least two alcohol-free days each week, a committee of British MPs has recommended.

In 1987, the "sensible limits" for drinking were defined as 21 units of alcohol a week for men and 14 for women. By the early 1990s, scientific evidence had emerged suggesting that alcohol consumption might reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, prompting a review of the guidelines.

"There is an increased risk of liver disease for those who drink daily or near-daily compared with those who drink periodically or intermittently."

For anyone who has a drinking problem, and is looking to get help. Please see the alcohol help & resources section of this site.
