We\’re going to end up like the Americans on this alcohol subject, you know? And that sort of hysteria isn\’t a good thing.
Pregnant women are warned they should drink no alcohol at all despite no evidence the occasional glass is harmful.
And despite the odd glass being relaxing, something beneficial.
The hysteria in the US can reach the stage that women can panic after eating a salad where wine was used in the preparation of the dressing. We simply don\’t need to go down that road.
The reason why it has been announced?
Dr Gillian Leng, of Nice, said the advice was tightened partly because of the recognition of the harm excessive drinking was doing in society generally.
So because some drink excessively and damage themselves, those who are actually benefitting themselves by drinking moderately should stop?
