Recommended limits for safe alcohol consumption are too high in many developed countries and should be lowered to save lives, a study suggested today.
New Zealand's Ministry of Health guidelines recommend that men drink no more than three standard units a day and no more than 15 standard units a week.

"Recommended limits in Italy, Portugal and Spain are almost 50 percent higher than this, and in the United States of America, the upper limit for men is nearly double", the researchers found. "The lowest mortality we observed was in people who drank less than 10 standard drinks of alcohol a week", says Professor Bu Yeap, a health researcher at the University of WA and among the more than 100 global academics who co-authored the study.

Several Australian studies were part of this collaboration, contributing to the research and making the findings relevant to Australians.
Alison Douglas, Chief Executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland said: "This study reinforces the importance of the Chief Medical Officer's guidelines on lower risk drinking updated in 2016". So the researchers, led by Cambridge University's Dr. Angela Wood, used only information about people who were current drinkers "because ex-drinkers include people who might have abstained from alcohol owing to poor health itself, as well as those who have changed their habits to achieve a healthier lifestyle", they wrote. Alcohol causes more than 60 different health problems including the cardiovascular diseases covered by this study.
"Until then, the 2009 Alcohol Guidelines remain NHMRC's current advice".
