Researchers saying that even one glass of drink per day damages heart amongst the elderly
Now a days moderate drinking is classified as having two or more drinks per day (beer, wine or liquor) for men. In case of women it is said to be one drink a day.
Recent studies show that there are severe concerns have having alcoholic drinks. It is not the short term problems such as hangover or loss of sleep that you need to be concerned about. It is the long term effects that you should consider. Regular drinkers face severe illness which can extend to having cancer when a person drinks alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Not to mention that alcohol affects hormone levels and it will make cells even weaker. Smoking will worsen the situation even further.
In 2011, a survey estimates that in UK 4,100 people died of liver cancer, that is 11 people per day. Now researchers say that having two or more drinks may damage the heart, especially for elderly person. The main pumping chamber for the heart is the left ventricular mass and drinking cause’s enlargement of the wall of the heart. It is estimated that around 14 beverages weakly for adult males will cause this.
However, Women appear more susceptible than men to the cardiotoxic effects of alcohol which might potentially contribute to a higher risk of cardiomyopathy, for any given level of alcohol intake, said Scott Solomon, professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School.
It is the heart that delivers oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body. Then it carries away unwanted carbon dioxide and waste products. When a person drinks the arteries around the heart are damaged. Thus the more you drink the faster and crucial is the damage. Eventually the pumping system gets sore and the chances of it giving away (heart attack) increases. These problems are often referred to as cardiovascular diseases. In UK alone, alcohol has claimed more than 191, 000 victims a year. The threat of alcohol is so severe and real than we could imagine.
Thus the best lesson to take is the lesson of complete prohibition mentioned in the bible. Complete Bible studies showed the truth about alcohol. The result was Prohibition with its great benefits.
