United States physicians are increasingly encouraged to advise patients about health-related behaviors, such as smoking, but there is minimal discussion in the US medical literature about the need to advise patients about safe levels of alcohol consumption.Several factors likely contribute to this lack of focus on safe drinking practices.
These include the complex relationship between drinking and health, limitations in the available epidemiologic data, misinterpretation of the disease model of alcoholism, and physician attitudes.
