It is found in 12 ounces (355 ml) of regular beer, 5 ounces (150 ml) of wine or 1.5 ounces (45 ml) of spirit.

While occasional drinking may not harm your health, binge drinking can have negative consequences.

It can not only damage vital organs but also affect your mood and behavior.

Consuming too much alcohol can have deteriorating effects on your central nervous system.

Moderate drinking reportedly involves up to one drink per day for women and up to two drinks per day for men.

About 2% of those who drink within these limits have an alcohol use disorder.
