Consumer/Health Groups Call for Meaningful Change in How Treasury Department Regulates Alcohol Labeling
Date:12/12/2008

e drinking is to know how much you are drinking. So, remember, 12 ounces of regular beer has the same amount of alcohol as five ounces of wine and an ounce and a half of distilled spirits. * Alcohol affects women differently than men. Besides producing less of the enzyme responsible for breaking down alcohol, women generally have a lower percentage of natural body water than men, which means alcohol levels are more concentrated and women are likely to feel the effects (including the onset of alcohol-related diseases) sooner. In light of these differences, the Dietary Guidelines recommends that women consume less alcohol -- up to one standard drink a day while men are advised to limit their consumption to two alcohol drinks a day. * Sometimes the wisest decision is not to drink. This is the case if you are younger than the minimum legal drinking age, pregnant, driving or operating machinery, or simply cannot control your drinking. * In many cases, alcohol and medications don't mix. Always read the label to determine if the prescription medicine or over-the-counter drug carries a specific warning about consuming alcohol. * If you are hosting a party, don't over-serve alcohol and keep an eye out for anyone who may have had too much to drink and is planning to drive home. If necessary, take their keys and call a taxi. Have plenty of non- alcoholic beverage choices available. * The obvious tip that everybody knows but sometimes forgets: before you go out, plan how you are going to get home. Designate a driver, have a taxi number, and have money ready to pay the taxi. Whatever you do, don't drink and drive and plan on staying sober. * Whether you are a parent, family member or a friend, don't serve to or buy alcohol for people under 21.
