alcohol vs health

After having a stressful day, everybody wants to relax at the end of the day by using different ways. Some people meditate, some prefer to sleep, and some drink a beer or a glass of their favorite wine to relax.

It disturbs the immune system

Chronic excess alcohol intake can cause abnormalities in the blood, leading to anemia (low hemoglobin) and low platelets. It also restrains the immune system, making the body weak to fight against both viral and bacterial infections. People with binge drinking habit for over a long time are more prone to suffer from infections after surgery, burns, hepatitis C infection, tuberculosis, etc.

It weakens the bones and muscles

Long-term use of alcohol affects the muscles and weakens the bones. Heavy alcohol use inhibits the bone formation and absorption of calcium which leads to osteoporosis (thinning of bones). Heavy alcohol intake also lead to painful conditions like osteonecrosis (when bone tissue dies) and gout (kind of arthritis or inflammation of the joints).
