U.S. May Implement a Two Beers a Week Limit



Clear Facts:

  • The U.S. is considering revising its alcohol consumption guidelines to recommend a limit of two drinks per week, moving closer to Canada’s strict guidelines.
  • NIAAA Director George Koob believes there are no physical health benefits from alcohol, suggesting diet plays a more significant role in perceived benefits.
  • Critics argue the move is premature and indicative of overreach, questioning its necessity without comprehensive scientific review.

In a move that’s ruffling feathers, the U.S. might soon advise its citizens to follow Canada’s stricter alcohol consumption guidelines.

The current U.S. guidelines might be headed for a significant overhaul, and not everyone is happy about it.

A Potential Change in Direction: Currently, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) recommends that “men drink no more than two drinks per day and that women stick to just one drink per day.”

However, George Koob, the director of NIAAA, told the Daily Mail that the U.S. could change its guidelines to mirror Canada’s recommendation of just “two drinks per week.”

Koob, shedding light on the potential switch, said, “If there’s health benefits, I think people will start to re-evaluate where we’re at.” He firmly believes there are “no benefits” to physical health from drinking alcohol.

In explaining the potential direction of the guidelines, Koob noted, “Most of the benefits people attribute to alcohol, we feel they really have more to do with what someone’s eating rather than what they’re drinking.”

However, he did concede that alcohol can act as a “social lubricant.”

Pushback and Criticism: The possible changes haven’t been without backlash.

Representative Troy Nehls (R., Texas) had strong words about the move, asserting, “This is who the Democrats are. They want to control every aspect of your life.”


He scoffed at the proposed limit, saying, “Two beers a week? What a joke.”

Nehls didn’t miss the chance to recall history, pointing out that “JFK snagged 1,200 Cuban cigars just hours before banning all Cuban products from the United States.”

Amanda Berger from the Distilled Spirits Council voiced her concerns too.

She claimed Koob is undermining the “entire Dietary Guidelines process” by recommending a “drastic change to the federal recommendations on alcohol before the review of alcohol research has even begun.”

Berger emphasized the longstanding guidance, stating, “For more than 30 years, the federal guidance on alcohol consumption has been no more than one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men for those who choose to drink.”

    Proponents of enforcing such hairbrained ideas do not understand freedom nor human nature and deserve to be thrown out of office and shunned for the rest of their lives.

    Are we going back to prohibition? This happened in the 1930’s too and look what happened, speak eazies, Organized Crime, Bathtub Gin, what are Demorats thinking??? This is the United States of America, we are a FREE COUNTRY, we are NOT CANADA, a SOCIALIST COUNTRY. This Administration needs to get the Heck out of our lives and get back to controlling CRIME,the ECONOMY, AND INTRUSION BY FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

    This is just the beginning. The real purpose is to test the new digital money. They want to test our reaction when they count your social score to cut your paycheck like Canada did to force the truckers back to work.

    I agree with Representative Troy Nehls (R., Texas) had strong words about the move, asserting, “This is who the Democrats are. They want to control every aspect of your life.” We do have a lot of dumb in the hell are these stupid people voting Democrat’s in office. People better get their head out of there _ _ _ .

    My question is: How are they going to enforce this? Are they going to have you submit ID everytime you buy liquor? It seems to me it is unenforceable. Are we going back to the 1930’s prohibition? It seems like our “Free Country” is trying to mimic Communist China with the present Administration in Washington. I say we get rid of the present Administration instead of the alcohol.

    No alcohol but unlimited pot is OK? What is really going on here? There is always an underlying plot. Fight back people!

      Beginning to think they are TRYING to start a Civil War! Not that I care on the alcohol situation, since I don’t drink, BUT, I can tell you, that whiskey and rock candy are the best there is for a cough. Also, best there is for cramps! Codein didn’t work for me, but a hot toddy did! One of our neighbors knocked on our door in the middle of the night, during WW ll. Said his wife had coughed until she was throwing up and nothing seemed to help. Mother gave him some of my dad’s “cure” (whiskey and rock candy).He came over the next day and said he didn’t know what it was, but she stopped coughing immediately. Reason, it’s in most cough syrups! Just read an BIG article on the dangers of pot-and that included ALL pot! I do know the dangers of alcohol, as I was married to an alcoholic and had neighbors who were, when I was growing up, BUt, question IS-WHAT’S NEXT? Oh yeah! We’re already there-GUNS! When the food chain shuts down, we won’t even be able to hunt for food! They’ve already contaminated our “home grown” veggies! (Thanks, MR Obama).Meanwhile, they say we’re 20 yrs into a 100 yr drought! No water, no food, no meds, no guns-The commies are TAKING OVER! BUT, they will get a surprise! GOD is STILL in CONTROL, and HE is preparing HIS for ARMEGEDDON!

    What’s next, only 2 cups of coffee per week? Only 2 pieces of fried chicken per week?? And what difference does it make that there’s “no discernable health benefit???” This is one of the most absurd “proposals” I’ve ever heard, but ya’ll go ahead and keep on voting those Democrats into office…

    • Walker-SC-

      Nope no coffee or chicken just water and bugs is what they will get around to telling us we have to eat because of the food shortage they caused with the Wars they have put us in. Your one hundred percent correct keep putting them in and it will be the death of us all.

    After being in an accident caused to me by an underage drunk driver I think this ruling should apply to the underage imbibers in our country.

    If the dems try to enforce this nonsense, they will destroy at least two more industries, in the process: brewing and alcohol. I hope all my fellow union members are aware of the democrats plans and follow their jobs and their wallets when it comes time to vote.

      I guess the libtards want to bring back Prohibition.

      But as much pot as people want is OK, huh?

      It won’t apply to the democRATS,they are above the laws that the rest of us have to abide by.Some people say that there are two sets of rules one for conservatives and a different set for liberal,socialist democRATS.That is wrong,the democRATS have NO rules or laws that they have to follow.Does that make them OUTLAWS ????

        RELAX. This is not a law! It is a recommendation for health purposes. “Dietary guidelines”. Who abides by the 2 drinks per day guideline now? Who is enforcing it? NO ONE! RELAX!

    Ignore your rights and they’ll go away, one little thing at a time. Do not let “them” (and we know “them” are dems) infringe on ANY right you presently have or the right will disappear.

          Windmills, solar energy, eliminating combustion engines with regulations, shutting down oil drilling, supporting, illegal immigration with open borders, woke agendas in schools and military, two separate justice systems, inflation etc. and a third of the country thinks that any thing the Democrats do is just fine. We are allowing these people to govern us.
          This is Marxism to me. (I hope I can still say this or has time run out?)

    But all the pot people want is fine, eh?

    Don’t they realize men need more than two beers in order to make Democrat women look appealing?

    This will be a good birth control method. The average man needs more than two beers in order to find a Democrat woman attractive enough for sex.

    What we need to limit is just 2 democrats a year. Then we coukd be a healthier country. Happier for sure. Our diets would be better our country safer.

    Son of a gun somebody forgot to tell Canadians that they can only have two beers a day. That is a munch of B.S. If that were true than than why do we have so many in and out stores, beer stores. The only thing that the government does is keep raising the price of the beer. And we still keep buying an drinking the good stuff. So don’t believe everything you hear or see that comes from Dem-o-rats or commies.

  25. Len Bird

    Haven’t had a beer in a year and a half. Now I will consume two each day or maybe I will graduate from one gin and tonic to two. Progressives have always driven people to drink.
