Even 40ml of Liquor Daily Can Result in Death: Researchers

Daily consumption of just 40ml liquor may put you at death risk, say researchers

Moderate drinkers, beware. Even consuming 350ml of beer, 140ml of wine or 40ml of liquor daily within weekly low-risk drinking guidelines can result in hospitalisation and death, researchers have warned.

Moderate drinkers “are not insulated from harm,” said researchers led by Adam Sherk from Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada.

“Don’t drink or, if you do, drink no more than one drink per day,” said Sherk.

Overall, the best advice for drinking is to err on the side of caution.

“When it comes to alcohol use, less is better”.

The Canadian government’s low-risk drinking guidelines state that women should consume no more than about 10 drinks per week and men no more than 15.

During the research, Sherk and colleagues found that, a significant portion of alcohol-caused death and disability was experienced by those drinking liquor within guidelines.

For example, more than 50 per cent of cancer deaths resulting from liquor use occurred in people drinking moderately.

Further, 38 per cent of all liquor -attributable deaths were experienced by people drinking below the weekly limits or among former drinkers.

However, for women, liquor consumption within the guidelines did offer some protection from death from heart attack, stroke and diabetes.

Nonetheless, “This protective effect did not appear to hold for men who experienced harm at all drinking levels”.

According to the researchers, some drinking guidelines, which are published by many countries to help drinkers make informed health decisions, may still be high. (IANS)
