It's 2023 and you want to start telling people that drinking too much (in this case more than two per week) is bad for them? May I suggest we can decide what and how much to drink, or not drink, for ourselves. And eat.
And, as of this week we can carry 2.5 g of hard drugs and I guess use at least that — per day? Is there a recommended weekly dose of coke you'd like to share with us?
The CCSA (Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction) recommendations mean one to two standard drinks per week represent a one in 1,000 level risk of death — like, flat-out death, cardiac arrest, cancer? Two beers a week?
Wait, who's gonna cover the lost tax revenue if we stop drinking? The WHO says there is no safe level of consumption. Uh, does anyone still care, or trust, what they say?
📣 SOUND OFF: Will the new Health Canada guidelines around alcohol consumption change your drinking habits? Are you concerned about what it means for you? Send us a letter.
