No Amount of Alcohol is Good for Your Health

 

According to an analysis of 2016 global alcohol consumption and disease risk, no amount of alcohol, including beer and wine, is beneficial for your overall health.

In 2016, alcohol was responsible for nearly 3 million deaths according to the study, and the surprising finding is that there is no safe amount of alcohol that one can drink. [1] Researches are stating that any benefits of drinking alcohol that we once may have believed should be offset by the higher risks of cancer and other diseases that can result from alcohol. Our drug and alcohol treatment center in Pompano Beach provides customized alcohol addiction treatment. Below, we examine the recent findings that point to the overall dangers of alcohol.

The Risks Associated with Alcohol

We are all well aware of the risks that alcohol can have on our bodies and our brains; however, we may have thought that consuming just one drink here and there would not impose any harm. These findings suggest otherwise, and even the lowest levels of alcohol intake increases our risk of future diseases and other dangers. While there once was evidence that moderate drinking can reduce the risk of heart disease, this may only be true when the situation isolated. When it comes to the big picture, all risks and dangers should be considered.

One finding from this study noted that even one drink a day could shorten life expectancy. The key takeaway is that no amount of alcohol is actually good for your overall health, and you should not be drinking under the assumption that there are benefits. Excessive drinking can eventually turn into a full-blown addiction. If this is the case for you, it’s time to get help.
