UK Chief Medical Officers’ Low Risk Drinking Guidelines.
Following a full review of evidence and a period of public consultation, the UK Chief Medical Officers (CMOs) have replaced the existing 1995 ‘Sensible Alcohol Advice’ with an updated ‘Low Risk Drinking Guidelines’. As well as revising the weekly guideline for unit consumption for men (bringing it into line with that of women at <14 units), the emphasis of the new guideline is that there can no longer be considered a “safe” level of alcohol consumption.
