'Drinking to Your Health' - New Zealand Beer, Wine and Spirits Council
This booklet aims to provide balanced and accurate information on the health benefits of moderate and responsible alcohol consumption and demonstrate to readers how beer, and alcohol in general, can be part of a healthy lifestyle.

The booklet gives advice on how to drink safely with moderate drinking being one factor in having a healthy life-style, and looks at specific areas of medical research where alcohol has been proved to have a beneficial effect. It revisits old myths about alcohol and health by informing readers of some of the latest international medical research in this area.

Chief Executive Nicki Stewart writes ‘We believe that this initiative will assist with a better understanding of what constitutes a responsible drinking culture and environment within New Zealand’.
