Alcohol and gender directory
Alcohol abuse is a health issue for both men and women in the UK. Four in 10 men drink more than the daily unit guidelines, risking health issues from low energy and sexual problems, to heart disease and cancer. About 1 in 6 women may develop a health problem caused by alcohol. Risks range from weight gain and sleep issues, to fertility issues and breast cancer.
