New draft guidelines suggest 10 alcoholic drinks a week at a maximum

The guidelines around drinking alcohol are being updated.

The National Health and Medical Research Council has put up new recommendations for public discussion — they say people should be drinking no more than 10 standard drinks a week, or four standard drinks on any one day, to minimise risk of disease.

“The point of these guidelines is really not to tell people at all how to drink, they are really there as an evidence-informed guideline and its up to individuals whether they want to change their drinking patterns or how much they drink or not.”
