Doctors and genetically identical twins Chris and Xand van Tulleken want to find out.
With the current drinking guidelines under review, the twins embark on self-experimentation to see the effects of different drinking patterns on their health. With Chris drinking 21 units spread evenly across the week and Xand having his 21 in single weekly binges, how will their bodies differ after a month?
Catching up with the latest research into alcohol drinking patterns, we ask if moderate drinking is genuinely good for us - and whether binge drinking is really that bad..
Doctor Alexander told the Mail Online: "I was essentially paid to get drunk - and it was horrific.
"After just one month I'd caused widespread and serious damage to my entire body, while my blood was being poisoned by bacteria that had leaked from my gut."
