Experts are saying that men should only drink one alcoholic beverage a day.

The suggestion was made by a committee on alcohol consumption that was formed for U.S. Dietary Guidelines.

“As a nation, our collective health would be better if people generally drank less,” Dr. Timothy Naimi, an alcohol researcher at Boston University told the AP.

The advice is based on links between drinking and many diseases.

One doctor said there is a modest increase in the chance of death for people who drink 2 beverages a day versus 1.

The current guidelines say men should limit themselves to two drinks and women should stop at one.
