    New US Dietary Guidelines Rejects Recommendations to Cut Alcohol Intake

    New dietary guidelines from the US Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services rejected the recommendation that men lower their alcoholic beverage intake to one drink per day from the current standard of two. The committee’s recommendations did not meet a “preponderance of the evidence” standard required by law, according to Brandon Lipps, deputy undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer services at the USDA. The decision has received praise from the beverage alcohol industry for choosing to maintain a long-time standard of what is already considered moderate alcohol consumption.
