NHS Birmingham East and North is encouraging women to have at least three alcohol-free days every week by signing up to the “3 Days Booze Free” challenge.
The challenge kicked off last week and lasts for three months, allowing women to complete the challenge before enjoying the Christmas season.
The primary care trust’s director of health improvement Nicola Benge said: “Recent research shows that drinking every day, even in small amounts, can significantly increase the risk of liver disease, so having three days every week without alcohol reduces the risk of serious harm.”
