ALCOHOL & YOUR HEALTH:
The long term effects
Regularly drinking too much alcohol can have severe effects on your health.
High blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, liver cirrhosis and even cancer are linked to the long-term effects of drinking.
Regularly exceeding the Chief Medical Officer’s guidelines for alcohol consumption significantly increases your risk of developing over 60 diseases including alcohol dependence and strokes. Women who drink little more than two small glasses of wine everyday are more than 50% more likely to get breast cancer than those who don’t drink. The long term effects of heavy drinking result in men being 4 times more likely to develop high blood pressure. Your mental health and social life can also be affected.
