A new study says Canadians lowball how much alcohol they consume by up to 75 percent – especially when it comes to wine.
The study was done by the University of Victoria’s Centre for Addictions Research.
Its director says it’s easier for society to ignore the disease and injury risks associated with alcohol consumption when policies are based on a gross underestimation of how much people actually drink.
The study, published in the journal Addiction, includes three years of data from surveys of 45-thousand Canadians.
