New Drinking Limits

I appeared on WCCO Television this morning to discuss some new alcohol drinking limits. The context was a Lancet study that will likely be incorporated into the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s updated Dietary Guidelines

Consistent with the Lancet study and traditional binge drinking definitions, my current advice regarding consumption is:

  • Men: Up to 7 drinks per week; no more than 4 drinks per occasion/sitting
  • Women: Up to 7 drinks per week; no more than 3 drinks per occasion/sitting

Key caveat: These recommendations are for people without a history of addiction. Those with a history of addiction should abstain from alcohol.
