Research suggests men (and women) who consume one or two alcoholic drinks per day have a lower death rate from coronary heart disease than abstainers.

 The recommended safe intake for men is no more than three units of alcohol a day, or 21 units per week. Units of alcohol should not be confused with number of drinks, as many common drinks count as more than one unit.

One and a half units of alcohol is equivalent to:

A small glass of wine (12 percent alcohol by volume)
a standard, single shot-sized measure of spirits (40 percent alcohol by volume)
Men should drink no more than four units of alcohol in a single day and should have at least two alcohol-free days per week.
