After conducting a research, Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council has updated the drinking guidelines, stating in it that it is no longer safe to have two standard drinks a day. The new guidelines warn that adults should have “no more than 10 standard drinks per week” to reduce the health risks from alcohol, or roughly 1.4 drinks a day. The maximum an adult should have on a single day is four standard drinks. “Drinking above this level increases this risk while drinking less frequently and drinking less on each occasion reduces this lifetime risk of alcohol-related harm,” the guidelines state.
