New research which analysed more than half a million drinkers worldwide suggests alcohol consumption should be limited to below 100g or just under 10 standard Australian drinks over a 7 day period.

The research found that consumption of alcohol lowered people’s life expectancy at age 40 by between 6 months and 5 years.

The research showed that the more people drank alcohol, the higher the risk of life threatening diseases such as stroke and heart failure.

Researchers suggested recommended alcohol limits in many countries should be lowered to 100g/week for men and women to minimise risk to health.
