Only 1 drink?!
All this time you’ve been told that having two drinks of alcohol a day is ok, but now a federal panel says that you should have only one alcoholic drink a day. The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee came up with the new guideline during their recent meeting that only happens once every five years.
According to the committee, if you stick to two drinks per day there will be a “modest but meaningful” increase in your death rate. The committee also concluded that we should cut down on the amount of added sugar intake, but what do you say we get over the whole alcohol reduction first.
What do you think about the findings of the committee? Are you going to change to only 1 drink a day?
