Warn­ing to drink safely

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

HEALTH chiefs are urg­ing peo­ple to drink sen­si­bly dur­ing the World Cup.

Dr Lin­coln Sargeant, pub­lic health con­sul­tant at NHS Cam­bridgeshire, said: “It is very easy for peo­ple to get in the rou­tine of reg­u­lar drink­ing while watch­ing a game of foot­ball with­out re­al­is­ing that they are putting their health at risk.”

Na­tional guide­lines rec­om­mend men drink no more than three to four units daily, the equiv­a­lent of two pints of lager, while women should drink two to three units daily, the equiv­a­lent to a large glass of wine.
