Sobering Information: The Effects of Alcohol on the Body

Sobering Information: The Effects of Alcohol on the Body

While it may seem harmless to “live it up” once in a while, drinking too much alcohol can have some pretty dramatic effects on the body.

Here are some of the things alcohol does to your health, and why you will want to limit how much you drink:

Brain Fog

Alcohol disrupts the communication pathways inside your brain and can even affect the way your brain looks and works. Not only will you have trouble with clear thinking and coordination, but you may also find your mood takes a dramatic hit.

Heart Damage

Drinking can damage your heart and cause irregular heartbeats, high blood pressure, and even strokes. And this can happen to those who drink a lot over long periods of time, and even those who drink too much on a single occasion!


According to the National Cancer Institute, there is a strong correlation between drinking alcohol and the development of certain cancers such as esophageal, liver, breast, and colon cancer. 

Compromised Immunity

Drinking too much alcohol can compromise your immune system, making you far more susceptible to illness and disease. In fact, chronic drinkers are prone to catching diseases like pneumonia more so than people who don’t drink. 

If you are going to drink, remember to take care and not overdo alcohol consumption. And if you believe you may be drinking too much these days, set a goal of cutting back. Your health will thank you.
