The present publication synthesizes work done in the EU co-funded Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol related Harm (RARHA) to identify good practice principles for the use of low risk drinking guidelines as a public health tool. The current guidelines in European countries show considerable variation in the quantity of alcohol consumption considered low-risk. Work was carried out in RARHA to shed light on the factors behind the divergence and explore whether some degree of consensus could be achieved. It is hoped that the principles and conclusions arising from this work are found helpful to inform future action and policy development.
Low risk drinking guidelines and other kinds of consumer information on the health aspects of alcoholic beverages do not provide a magic wand for reducing alcohol related harm. There is compelling evidence that measures to control the availability, affordability and promotion of alcoholic beverages are the most effective policies to reduce harm for alcohol consumers, for people around them and for the wider society. Nevertheless, information about the risks related to alcohol consumption and about ways to avoid risks contributes to higher awareness about the need for individual action and public policy - and failing to provide accurate and reliable information would be highly unethical.
