A Study Finds That Men Under 40 Shouldn’t Have More Than A Shot Of Beer A Day

We all love a little overindulgence. Especially on the weekends, and especially when it boiling hot outside. Beer gardens, pub walks and more are the order of the day.

But, according to new research, if you’re under 40, the amount of alcohol you can consume is a lot less than you might have thought.

We all know moderation is key to staying healthy, but researchers at the Univerity of Washington’s School of Medicine’s new study findings are very tame indeed.

The NHS recommends 14 units a week, which is around six pints for or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine for people to stay within ‘safe limits’.

The new study says the actual safe amount is 38ml shot of beer a day. We know, shocking – right! Not quite sure that will quench your thirst on a day like this.

This is for men under 40, if you’re a woman aged 39 and under, it’s great news for you. Woman can safely drink 100ml of beer a day before putting your health at risk.

She commented: “Our message is simple – young people should not drink, but older people may benefit from drinking small amounts.

“While it may not be realistic to think young adults will abstain from drinking, we do think it’s important to communicate the latest evidence so that everyone can make informed decisions about their health.”
