The British people are getting some advice on their drinking habits from some members of  government: take a hiatus from drinking a couple of days a week.

The recommendations came after the Science and Technology committee, made up of members of Parliament, decided to look over the current drinking guidelines, which have been revised over the years. Those guidelines may not have placed enough emphasis on the downsides of drinking.

According to the UK newspaper the Telegraph, the committee wants the Department of Health to follow the example set by Scotland and recommend two days of no alcohol per week.
