Extra glass of wine, beer takes 30 minutes off your life

Drinking more than five glasses of wine a week could knock years off life, study suggests

10 glasses of wine a week can shorten your life by 2 years

The new study showed that the top of the safe limit for weekly drinking was about five drinks a week, which translates to just over five United Kingdom pints (or 95 ounces in the U.S.) of beer with a 4% alcohol by volume or five 175ml (or 29.5 ounces in the U.S.) of wine with a 13% alcohol by volume.

Drinking as little as an extra glass of wine a night could shorten your life by thirty minutes according to a new study.

The study included data from 600,000 drinkers in 19 countries. Half the group reported drinking more than six glasses of wine per week and 8.4 percent drank more than 21 glasses per week, according to report.

Likewise someone consuming 100-200g per week or 200-350g per week shaved an estimated six months or one to two years of their life expectancy.
