A government advisory body has warned that the middle classes in the UK are drinking “hazardous” levels of alcohol. The report comes from Scottish Health Action on Alcohol Problems, and claims that anyone who drinks more than four units of alcohol on their heaviest drinking day (two glasses of wine or two pints of beer) is endangering their health. However, retired GP Richard Taylor, who is a member of the government’s Health Committee, says that “within reason”, stepping outside the government limits of 21 units for men and 14 units for women “will not do you any harm”.
