Question

Is there any danger to health from drinking cider?

Answer

Kat: I would think there probably is if you get really drunk, fall over, do something stupid. Chris: Well, cider's a little bit stronger than beer, on average, isn't it? So, I would think enjoyed at the same rate as any other alcoholic beverage and within guidelines prescribed by the government and not more than 21 units per week for men or 14 units per week for women. I can't see any reason why it would be worse for you but obviously in excess it's gonna be bad. Do you think it counts as one of your five a day? Kat: I don't think it counts as a fruit and veg, no!
