Alcohol Consumption

While there is some evidence that alcohol in moderation can have certain beneficial effect for your health, drinking over the recommended limits can be harmful, and heavy or binge drinking can increase your risk of developing liver problems, stomach disorders, mental health problems, sexual difficulties, high blood pressure, obesity, some cancers, as well as a host of other problems.

The recommended limits are 3 units/day for men and 2 units/day for women, with 2 alcohol free days per week.
