Do You Drink Too Much?
A brand new study released by the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says that most adults in this country "drink within limits". Within the survey, researchers found that 64 percent of men and 79 percent of women didn't drink at all that day, and another 18 percent of men and 10 percent of women drank within the recommended amounts.
According to the Journal, the recommended amount of alcohol intake per day is two drinks for men and one drink for women.
The Journal surveyed 5,400 adults over the age of 21. They were asked "how much did you drink yesterday"?
They did find however that 8 percent of men and 3 percent of woman are heavy drinkers, exceeding the recommended amount of alcohol intake.
But, it was good to know that the majority of Americans stay within the advised limits.
One would have to wonder how the survey would come out in countries like Russia, where vodka is very popular.
