Another glass? – Scientists say that drinking one glass of wine or pint of beer over the daily recommended limit of two units of alcohol will reduce the lifespan of a 40-year-old by 30 minutes. The extensive survey published in the Lancet says the risks of a little bit of extra booze were comparable to smoking. “Above two units a day, the death rates steadily climb,” is the chilling advice from Cambridge professor David Spiegelhalter. The study included data from nearly 600,000 drinkers in 83 studies carried out in 19 countries.
