Responsible Service of Alcohol Update: More Reasons to Avoid Binge Drinking
Scientists are finding more and more evidence of the health benefits of moderate drinking but equally warranted is the research that is being presented showing the dangers of binge drinking.
Most people think binge drinking is perfectly acceptable if they only do it occasionally but it has been proven to be a gateway into alcoholism, especially for people with addictive personalities.
There are dangers to having a drink every day that drinkers need to be aware of because they are endangering their health in the process.
Research suggest that men should not regularly drink more than 3 to 4 units of alcohol a day and women should not regularly drink more than 2 to 3 units of alcohol a day. Doctors also warn that people should allow 48 hours between a binge drinking session and your next drink, most alcoholics cannot do this.
Alcohol’s hidden dangers usually only emerge after a number of years and by then they may have caused irreversible damage to the major organs such as liver problems, reduced fertility, high blood pressure, increased risk of various cancers, heart problems etc. The more you drink the more the damage caused.
While most researchers agree, drinking in moderation is not a problem and in fact good for your health, people who drink everyday are more at risk of dying from an alcohol related disease or developing an alcohol addiction.
