Effects of drinking high quantity of alcohol on your health

Health risks :
About 1 in 3 men and about 1 in 7 women drink more than the safe levels. Many people who drink heavily are not addicted to alcohol and are not alcoholics. To stop or reduce alcohol would not be a problem if there was the will to do so. However, for various reasons, many people have got into a habit of drinking regularly and heavily. But, drinking heavily is a serious health risk.
You should regularly talk to your children about the risks of alcohol in a way that is appropriate for their age .
If you drink heavily you have an increased risk of developing:
   

~Inflammation of the liver (hepatitis).

‘Scarring’ of the liver (cirrhosis). Up to 3 in 10 long-term heavy drinkers develop cirrhosis.

 

   ~Some cancers (mouth, gullet, liver, colon and breast).
    ~Stomach disorders.
     ~Severe inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis).
     ~Mental health problems, including depression, anxiety and various other problems.
      ~Wernicke’s encephalopathy – an alcohol-related brain disorder treated with vitamin B1 (thiamine).
      ~Sexual difficulties such as impotence.
      ~Muscle and heart muscle disease.

     

       ~High blood pressure.
       ~Damage to nervous tissue 
        ~Accidents – drinking alcohol is associated with a much increased risk of accidents. In particular, injury and death from fire and car crashes. 
About 1 in 7 road deaths are caused by drinking alcohol.
      ~Obesity (alcohol is calorie-rich). One glass of wine has as many calories as a bag of crisps and a pint of lager is the calorie equivalent of a sausage roll.
       ~Damage to an unborn baby in pregnant women.
       ~Alcohol dependence (addiction).

  1. I don´t know if it´s severe inflamation of the pancreas, is more like dead tissue of the pancreas. Half of mine is dead, that´s what the doctors told me. It can also lead to diabetes in the not so long term.
    Drinking heavily can also give you thrombosis on the lungs, in my case on both lungs. I can go on and on. Actually if I gave you my medical records it would be hard for you to find something good. Which since I have been in and out of the hospital because of alcohol problems and affecting quite a lot of my inner system I actually know more than most doctors and also how to keep yourself healthy which is why I should write for you. For a price of 1.000$ per post 😉
    Take care, I like reading health tips.
