On any given day in America, over half of the population consumes alcohol. While there is scientific consensus on the health detriment of overconsumption, there is less agreement on if we should be drinking at all. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines outlined how alcohol can fit into a healthy diet, but a recent meta-analysis argued that guidance should be re-evaluated. With 2020 Dietary Guidelines underway, now is the time to hear the arguments and decide for yourself.
