11 Worst Countries for Binge Drinking

How much alcohol is safe to drink? It is a question scientists have been trying to get to the bottom of for centuries, and now a survey exploring drinking advice around the world has found that the answer varies greatly depending on where you live. In the US, for example, three or four drinks a day (42g for women and 56g for men) is thought to be safe, but in Sweden that is well over the amount health authorities recommend: 10g for women and 20g for men. What’s more, a “standard drink” in Iceland and the UK is 8g of alcohol, compared to 20g in Austria. According to this the Insidermonkey experts made a list of 11 worst countries for binge drinking.
