    Britons told to 'stay off drink for two days a week'

    Reuters January 9, 2012

    LONDON -- Britons should avoid drinking alcohol for at least two days a week to protect their health, a committee of MPs said in a report published Monday.

    Current guidelines focus on maximum units of alcohol that can be safely consumed but people sometimes struggle to understand how many units there are in their glass of wine or pint of beer.

    "We suggest that, if daily guidelines are retained, the Government consider simplifying the guidelines so that, as is the case in Scotland, all individuals are advised to take at least two alcohol-free days a week," the report said.

    "This would enforce the message that drinking every day should be avoided, and would helpfully quantify what "regular" drinking means to the public," it added.

    The government, industry and charities should emphasize the acute risks of heavy drinking and the chronic risks of regular drinking, the review said.

    I think you are OK to drink all seven dude, this is just for the Brits on the other side of the pond, not the Canuc ones as near as I can tell. It is kinda like the stuff that is found to cause birth defects in California babies here. Your good to go, raise your glass, drink and be merry.
