What is a "Standard" drink? Medical definition of a standard drink.
So your doctor says, "no more than 2 drinks a day". What does that mean....is a beer one drink? 16 oz. or 12 oz.? Is an 8 ounce glass of wine a drink? How about 14 ounces? or 12?
How about spirits.....how much is "a drink"?
Here's the answer according to the Cleveland Clinic Men's Health Advisor:
"A standard drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 8 to 9 ounces of malt liquor, 5 ounces of wine, or 1-1/2 ounce of 80 proof distilled spirits."
Now you know!
