Low Risk Drinking Guidelines

Canada's Low Risk Drinking Guidelines indicate no more than 2 standard drinks on any one day for women and no more than 3 standard drinks on any one day for men with a maximum of 10 and 15 standard drinks a week for women and men, respectively. A couple of days with no alcohol drinking should be taken each week. (http://www.ccsa.ca/Eng/topics/alcohol/drinking-guidelines/Pages/default.aspx)
