This study estimates the alcohol consumption levels associated with two definitions of ‘low risk’ drinking which were developed when selecting guideline thresholds in Canada and Australia. These definitions are applied to UK data on alcohol consumption, hospitalisation and mortality alongside international epidemiological study evidence within the Sheffield Alcohol Policy Model (v.2.7).
