Is 20 u.k. units of alcohol per week significantly bad on health?

Probably: Don't know what a UK unit of alcohol is, but in general having more than 2 drinks a day is not good for health. On the other hand, having up to 2 drinks (2 -3 oz of 100 proof) per day may have some health benefits with some exceptions.
