Citation for "Maximum Quantity Recommended"[edit]


The section "Maximum Quantity Recommended" needs a citation. The UK government offers their recommendation here.[1]

I'm sure other government agency have their own recommendations as well.

Removing Primary Source Citations[edit]

We do not use primary sources when there are high-quality secondary sources available, particularly when the secondary sources contradict the primary sources, as is the case in this article.Sbelknap (talk) 20:24, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

erroneous statements in lede[edit]

The lede asserts that moderate ethanol consumption conveys health benefits and cites primary sources and low-quality secondary sources. This assertion of health benefits contradicts high-quality secondary sources mentioned in the main body of the article. The lede needs revision to reflect the best available information from secondary sources. Sbelknap (talk) 20:25, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

I have made some changes to the lede that reflect the most recent meta-analysis results, as described in the body of the article.Sbelknap (talk) 02:19, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

good job.--Literaturegeek | T@1k? 12:27, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

Primary source citations abound[edit]

A cursory look at referencing finds that many of the references are primary sources. In a few instances, references had nothing to do with the text being 'supported'. Given the controversy of benefit:harm theories, this article could use a rigorous review of the cited literature. David notMD (talk) 14:12, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
