While inappropriate or excessive drinking causes health and social damage, moderate drinking doesn’t.

The World Health Organisation states: “There are beneficial relationships with coronary heart disease, stroke and diabetes mellitus, provided low-to-moderate average volume of consumption is combined with non-binge patterns of drinking. For example, it is estimated that ischaemic stroke would be about 17% higher in the Eur-A sub-region [which includes the UK] if no one consumed alcohol” (World Health Report 2002).
