How many units?
According to proposed new NHS guidelines, both women and men should aim to drink no more than 14 units of alcohol per week, equivalent to 14 single shots of spirits, seven standard glasses of wine or six pints of beer. It also urges drinkers to consider setting aside a few ‘alcohol-free’ days each week and also recommends pregnant women avoid alcohol altogether.
The new recommended limits are being introduced following a review of the most up-to-date scientific evidence available, which may indicate even moderate, regular quantities of alcohol can be harmful to health.
