Good news, everyone! Two pints a day keep heart problems at bay

No, I'm sober enough to read the actual BMJ press release - and the end of Orlowski's article, where he defines moderate as 20g/day (which is probably a mistake for 20ml/day), or a tad over 2 units (or probably intended to be 2 units), which is a pint, not two pints.

Also, the BMJ press release defines it as 14 units a week.
