The Science of Getting Drunk

Most of us have enjoyed an adult beverage from time to time.  When used in moderation there are actually documented health benefits to alcohol. While I don’t recommend people consume alcohol to better their health, the research is quite clear that it can help your heart and your brain. But that is a slippery slope. If some is good, more is better right!?

Absolutely not! Alcohol is excess causes MAJOR health problems.  It causes havoc in every body system you can think of. It is not part of a healthy lifestyle when consumed in excess.

Below is an interesting graphic I came across this morning from www.bitrebels.com. It’s a fun way to understand what happens to our bodies when we consume too much alcohol.  Remember, alcohol in moderation is ok, but always enjoy it responsibly.
