New research shows that British chief executives of big companies and public sector organizations are drinking the equivalent of almost three bottles of wine each week. The findings suggest that a higher position on the totem pole corresponds with drinking more alcohol. Men with the most hefty titles drink an average of more than 11 medium glasses of wine, weekly.
Health is at risk for these successful but stressed-out big shots, whose consumption exceeds the total recommended weekly limit. According to the study, doctors (shouldn't they know better!), lawyers, accountants, and other professional men are also sipping above-average amounts of alcohol. Moderation is out of mode for these busy guys, who are likely to drink twice as much as women.
