You have heard that red dry is good for your heart and so on. But what if that’s just another myth?
Recent research, published in the BMJ, showed that skipping alcohol is better for your health. You can live a longer, happier and much healthier live without alcohol at all. It was proved during recent research that involved 260,000 participants. The findings revealed that participants who consumed 17% less alcohol per week had a 10% lower risk of stroke and other heart related issues. Their blood pressure decreased, and they also lost some weight. A few years ago it was believed by many that red wine is healthy since it contains resveratrol – an antioxidant that has a positive impact on our cardiovascular system. Nowadays, experts strongly question the benefits of alcohol.
It’s natural of people to enjoy life and drink their favorite liquor from time to time. The problem is that most tend to justify their drinking with health claims. Whether you like it or not, alcohol is extremely addictive and for many people it has become part of their life. Drinking a beer or two to ease tension and stress after work has become a daily habit. According to statistics, binge drinking is responsible for 10% of all adult deaths in the US. Too much alcohol is always bad. And as to your health, remember that alcohol has ruined more lives than it has saved.
