Experts are recommending that the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans be updated to reflect that men should now limit their alcohol consumption to only one drink a day.
This recommendation has been in place for 30 years but now a committee of experts are asking for a change. According to Dr. Timothy Naimi who is an alcohol researcher at Boston University, he stated that there is an increase in risk of death based on people who have two drinks in a day versus one.
Experts also didn't see evidence that they should continue to differ in their health recommendations for drinking as they pertain to men or women.
