What is the bottom line on alcohol consumption?

There have been numerous articles over the years on alcohol and the link to various chronic diseases – often with conflicting information. The most recent report talks about the link between alcohol and cancer. So how do you decide what amount of alcohol is safe? The article does agree with the CAMH low-risk drinking guidelines, which state that no alcohol = no risk, especially as it relates to cancer prevention. Other than that, you need to make your own decisions about what is low risk for you. Stay tuned, sounds like as more research comes out, the drinking guidelines will be changing.
