This likelihood of an early death increases the more alcohol is consumed, the Cambridge-led researchers said.

We won't bore you with the math it takes to figure out how many units of alcohol are in your drink, but instead, provide this handy guide that shows that on average, a glass of red wine has two units of alcohol while white wine has three.

In a commentary in the Lancet, Professors Jason Connor and Wayne Hall from the University of Queensland Centre for Youth Substance Abuse Research in Australia, anticipated that the suggestion of lowering recommended drinking limits will come up against opposition.

Lead author Dr Angela Wood said: "The key message of this research is that if you already drink alcohol, drinking less may help you live longer and lower your risk of several cardiovascular conditions".

Researchers also looked at the link between heart disease and alcohol intake.

A new study of almost 600,000 people who drink in 19 countries shows that those extra drinks add up and cut our lives short. US recommendations state that men shouldn't consume more than 14 standard drinks per week, which is almost twice the limit proposed in this new study. Scientists found a 40-year-old exceeding the benchmark of 100g of pure alcohol, around five drinks a week, had their life expectancy shortened by six months.

Although it concluded that alcohol did lower the risk of non-fatal heart attacks, it found that "on balance" there were no health benefits from drinking.

Prof Jeremy Pearson, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, which part-funded the study, called it "a serious wakeup call for many countries".

On the other hand, the risk of nonfatal heart attacks was somewhat smaller for people drinking more. Experts say this is because it increases levels of good cholesterol, which can help protect against fatty deposits in blood vessels, reducing your risk of heart and circulatory disease. "This powerful study may make sobering reading for countries that have set their recommendations at higher levels than the United Kingdom", shared Victoria Taylor, of the British Heart Foundation. Half the group reported drinking more than six glasses of wine per week and 8.4 percent drank more than 21 glasses per week, according to report. That's about the same risk as from a cigarette, David Spiegelhalter, Winton professor for the public understanding of risk at the University of Cambridge, explained in a statement.

In spite of the massive number of participants, the study was limited in a number of ways.

"The paper estimates a 40-year-old drinking 4 units a day above the guidelines has roughly two years" lower life expectancy, which is around a twentieth of their remaining life.
