Is the "recommended" daily limit (of wine) the same in Europe as in N. America?

North American doctors seem to agree that 4 oz. of wine a day for women is healthy, more is harmful. (1 glass per day, or some say 4 glasses per week- I think its 2 glasses per day for men?) I'm wondering if countries like Spain, Italy, France, and Greece have the same limits recommended by the medical community, and what people in those countries think is a "healthy" daily amount to drink. ie: not excessive or abusive. I would also like to know what the general impression of wine drinkers is to these recommended limits. I have the impression that people in European countries drink more than a glass a day without feeling like they are overdoing it. I would love to know what people in Spain, France, Italy, Greece - etc. think about this.
