The 10 Most Serious Side Effects Of Alcohol On Your Body


Joy Home Remedies Brings You: The 10 Most Serious Side Effects of Alcohol
on Your Body Alcohol’s impact on your body starts from
the moment you take your first sip. While an occasional glass of wine with dinner
isn’t a cause for concern, the cumulative effects of drinking wine, beer, or spirits
can take its toll. Keep watching to learn about the most dangerous
effects of alcohol on your body! Number 1 – Digestive And Endocrine Glands Drinking too much alcohol can cause abnormal
activation of digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas. Buildup of these enzymes can lead to inflammation
known as pancreatitis. Pancreatitis can become a long-term condition
and cause serious complications. Number 2 – Inflammatory Damage The liver is an organ which helps break down
and remove harmful substances from your body, including alcohol. Long-term alcohol use interferes with this
process. It also increases your risk for chronic liver
inflammation and liver disease. The scarring caused by this inflammation is
known as cirrhosis. The formation of scar tissue destroys the
liver. As the liver becomes increasingly damaged,
it has a harder time removing toxic substances from your body. Liver disease is life-threatening and leads
to toxins and waste buildup in your body. Generally, women are at higher risk for developing
alcoholic liver disease. Women’s bodies are more likely to absorb
more alcohol and need longer periods of time to process it. Women also show liver damage more quickly
than men. Number 3 – Sugar Levels The pancreas helps regulate your body’s
insulin use and response to glucose. When your pancreas and liver aren’t functioning
properly, you run the risk of experiencing low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia. A damaged pancreas may also prevent the body
from producing enough insulin to utilize sugar. This can lead to hyperglycemia, or too much
sugar in the blood. If your body can’t manage and balance your
blood sugar levels, you may experience greater complications and side effects related to
diabetes. It’s important for people with diabetes
or hypoglycemia to avoid excessive amounts of alcohol. Number 4 – Central Nervous System One of the easiest ways to understand alcohol’s
impact on your body is by understanding how it affects your central nervous system. Slurred speech is one of the first signs you’ve
had too much to drink. Alcohol can reduce communication between your
brain and your body. This makes coordination more difficult. You may have a hard time balancing. You should never drive after drinking. As alcohol causes more damage to your central
nervous system, you may experience numbness and tingling sensations in your feet and hands. Drinking also makes it difficult for your
brain to create long-term memories. It also reduces your ability to think clearly
and make rational choices. Over time, frontal lobe damage can occur. This area of the brain is responsible for
emotional control, short-term memory, and judgment, in addition to other vital roles. Chronic and severe alcohol abuse can also
cause permanent brain damage. Number 5 – Dependency Some people who drink heavily may develop
a physical and emotional dependency on alcohol. Alcohol withdrawal can be difficult and life-threatening. You often need professional help to break
an alcohol addiction. As a result, many people seek medical detoxification
to get sober. It’s the safest way to ensure you break
the physical addiction. Depending on the risk for withdrawal symptoms,
detoxification can be managed on either an outpatient or inpatient basis. Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include: anxiety,
nervousness, nausea, tremors, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat and heavy sweating. Seizures, hallucinations, and delirium may
occur in severe cases of withdrawal. Number 6 – Digestive system The connection between alcohol consumption
and your digestive system might not seem immediately clear. The side effects often only appear after there
has been damage. And the more you drink, the greater the damage
will become. Drinking can damage the tissues in your digestive
tract and prevent your intestines from digesting food and absorbing nutrients and vitamins. As a result, malnutrition may occur. Heavy drinking can also lead to: gassiness,
bloating, a feeling of fullness in your abdomen, diarrhea or painful stools. For people who drink heavily, ulcers or hemorrhoids
(due to dehydration and constipation) aren’t uncommon. And they may cause dangerous internal bleeding. Ulcers can be fatal if not diagnosed and treated
early. Number 7 – Circulatory system Alcohol can affect your heart and lungs. People who are chronic drinkers of alcohol
have a higher risk of heart-related issues than people who do not drink. Women who drink are more likely to develop
heart disease than men who drink. Circulatory system complications include:
high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, difficulty pumping blood through the body,
stroke, heart attack, heart disease and heart failure. Difficulty absorbing vitamins and minerals
from food can cause anemia. This is a condition where you have a low red
blood cell count. One of the biggest symptoms of anemia, is
fatigue. Number 8 – Sexual and reproductive health You may think drinking alcohol can lower your
inhibitions and help you have more fun in bed. But the reality is quite different. Men who drink too much are more likely to
experience erectile dysfunction. Heavy drinking can also prevent sex hormone
production and lower your libido. Women who drink too much may stop menstruating. That puts them at a greater risk for infertility. Women who drink heavily during pregnancy have
a higher risk of premature delivery, miscarriage, or stillbirth. Women who drink alcohol while pregnant put
their unborn child at risk. Fetal alcohol syndrome disorder is a serious
concern. Other conditions include: learning difficulties,
long-term health issues, increased emotional problems, and physical development abnormalities. Number 9 – Skeletal and muscle systems Long-term alcohol use may prevent your body
from keeping your bones strong. This habit may cause thinner bones and increase
your risk for fractures if you fall. And factures may heal more slowly. Drinking alcohol may also lead to muscle weakness,
cramping, and eventually atrophy. Number 10 – Immune system Drinking heavily reduces your body’s natural
immune system. This makes it more difficult for your body
to fight off invading germs and viruses. People who drink heavily over a long period
of time are also more likely to develop pneumonia or tuberculosis, than the general population. About 10 percent of all tuberculosis cases
worldwide can be tied to alcohol consumption. People who consume too much alcohol may also
be at risk for cancer. People who drink frequently are more likely
to develop cancer in the mouth, throat, esophagus, breast, colon, or liver. People who regularly drink and use tobacco
together have an even greater cancer risk. A drink here and there, may do little damage
to your overall health. But if the habit grows, or if you find yourself
having a hard time stopping after just one glass, it’s time to evaluate your relationship
with booze! Thanks for watching! If you think what you’ve learned in this

  • Its still ok to drink in moderation but not to often. There is actually 5 surprising health benefits of moderate alcohol consumption. 1. It Can Lead to Longer Life
    Drinking occasionally could give you a few extra years, according to a previous study. It showed that less than four drinks per day for men and two drinks for women could reduce the risk of death by 18 percent. A moderate booze can extend a person’s life through the age of 90. 
    2. Lowers Chances of Having Cardiovascular Disease
    A study by researchers from the School of Public Health at Harvard University suggested that moderate amounts of alcohol raises levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), which is known as the “good” cholesterol. Higher HDL levels protects the heart by improving factors that influence blood clotting and reducing the risk of having heart attacks or a stroke.
    3. Lowers Erectile Dysfunction Risk in Men
    An Australian research showed that moderate drinking could reduce the risk of having erectile dysfunction. After an analysis of the health of 1,770 men, researchers found that chances of erectile dysfunction were reduced by 25 to 30 percent among alcohol drinkers. 
    4. Prevents Development of Dementia
    Drinking moderately could reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer's disease and other types of dementia by up to 23 percent, according to a previous study that involved more than 365,000 participants. 
    "Small amounts of alcohol might, in effect, make brain cells more fit,” a researcher said. “Alcohol in moderate amounts stresses cells and thus toughens them up to cope with major stresses down the road that could cause dementia."
    5. It Makes People Happy
    Many people know this. But there is a scientific explanation why drinking alcohol makes people happy. Researchers found that drinking beer helps people see happy faces faster and it increases one’s desire to spend time with other people in a fun social setting.
