The Truth About Alcohol

The Truth About Alcohol

David Briggs

Overview

In January 2016, the UK Government released refreshed alcohol guidelines, which had last been revised in 1995. The new recommendations outlined that both men and women should avoid drinking more than 14 units of alcohol per week, and that these units should be spread out over a few or more days.

But how will a few beers really affect your body? In The Truth About Alcohol, Javid Abdelmoneim conducts a series of experiments, with the help of some of the UK's leading scientific experts, to get some hard facts about alcohol's impact on our health.

Javid Abdelmoneim is a British A&E doctor and Emmy award-nominated TV presenter who is well-known for his work with Doctors without Borders. From debunking hangover cures to testing alcohol's effect on sleep, self-control, and appetite, Abdelmoneim conducts a thorough examination of the UK's drinking habits and how they impact human health.
