If the new recommendation of a glass of wine a day is sound, then how do the French live so long with the copious amount of vino that they consume?

Excellent point wheels36 and its not only France. Look at the rest of the Mediterrainean countries and places like Bulgaria from where certain regions grape vines originated.

Hi  The reduction in the alcohol level is only a recommendations and it's up to you to either ignore the advise or take it on board. Many of this forum criticize smokers for partaking in their perfectly lawful habit even when they follow the instructions to smoke only in dedicated areas.  It's all down to individual choice, if you wish to drink more than the recommended alcohol limits the individual isn't doing anything illegal.

If the UK's CMO says there is no safe alcohol limit then lets hope the next step will be 'zero' tolerance with regard to drinking and driving.

I completely agree!

Regarding safe levels of alcohol consumption I would recommend having a look at the Cancer Research UK website where there is an article covering exactly this & giving a full explanation as to why alcohol causes cancer.......make your own mind up !

I Think it is very clear !

A valid point Northern Star, I only have one issue with all the research and if we were to believe everything we wouldn't eat, drink or sometimes leave the house for our own safety. It's simple everything in moderation, as sometimes we are told drinking red wine has health benefits too.

I think it is best to make ones own decisions as you say everything in moderation !
