Just a small one, then
AMatt cartoon, a few years ago, showed a reveller clutching a giant wine goblet with the comment “I never have more than one glass”. It satirised the fact that our intake of alcohol is measured in units, with six glasses a week considered a healthy limit. Now academia has caught up. A University of Cambridge study has established the hardly surprising fact that if you want to drink less, then use smaller glasses. According to researchers, households that did consumed around 6.5 per cent less wine than those drinking from larger ones, with commensurate improvements in health. But surely it depends on how many glasses you drink, or is that to be the subject of another study? Perhaps the best deterrent to overindulgence is smaller bottles.
