Defining Moderate Drinking in Dietary Guidelines

Your input is needed!

The US Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee is proposing to alter the definition of "moderate drinking" and to encourage moderate drinking as part of a healthy diet. To make sure your voice is heard, you must submit comments by Friday, May 8th at 11:59 pm E.D.T. Comment now by clicking here.

Already advocates from across the country have commented on the failure of the proposed guidelines to define moderate, heavy and binge drinking. It is easy to comment and doesn't take much time at all. All you need to say is "We urge you to retain the 2010 US Dietary Guidelines regarding moderate alcohol consumption."
