Alcohol and your health: make your happy hour a healthy one

A cold beer on a hot afternoon, a glass of wine with dinner, a brandy or liqueur to cap off the evening... alcohol is one of life's pleasures for many people. However, too much of a good thing can have negative consequences. Worldwide, the number of people who drink alcohol is decreasing, but of the people who choose to drink, the amount consumed per person is on the rise.

We have compiled the latest research on alcohol consumption, including risks and benefits, to help make your ‘happy hours’ healthier ones.
