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 Guideline. 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 to be any “safe” level of alcohol consumption in the population.
