The Truth About Alcohol


Why is red wine better for you than white wine? Why do some people get drunk more quickly than others? And is it true that those dreaded RDAs are totally made up? Presented by Dr Javid Abdelmoneim, The Truth About Alcohol investigates the latest scientific findings, and talks to some of our top research scientists, to investigate Britain’s love affair with booze; and bust some myths along the way. Packed with revelatory, counterintuitive take-home content, the study cuts through today’s confusing and contradictory headlines and gives viewers the tools they need to enjoy alcohol responsibly and work out what’s right for them.
