Let’s Drink

There are a number of research supporting moderate alcohol consumption is good for health; however, it’s never good friend with money in your pocket .
Is alcohol a dangerous drug?


Alcohol is a poison that can cause irreversible damage to the liver, which labours to remove it from the body

The liver can remove alcohol from the body at the rate of one unit per hour

Heavy drinking is blamed for up to 33,000 deaths a year in the UK

Research has shown that moderate consumption of wine and beer is good for the heart

In Britain, nearly one in ten men and one in 20 women drinkers have an alcohol problem

Moderate consumption of alcohol by young women is thought to prevent high blood pressure

Over 9m people in the UK drink at levels that place their long-term health at risk

Research has suggested that moderate alcohol consumption may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in ageing drinkers

Drinkers are more likely to have casual sex that leads to unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases

Drinking helps people to relax in social situations

Alcohol is estimated to be a factor in 20-30% of accidents worldwide

Long-term alcoholics often suffer from alcoholic myopathy, a muscle-wasting condition that causes extreme tiredness after physical activity

Long-term alcoholics also lose bone mass as alcohol affects the way calcium is processed by the body

Too much is not good. Too less is neither. You miss a taste of magic beverage discovered by our ancesters four thousand years ago and, our good excuse, good time with friends. Moderate approach is the best. However, I still prefer drinking water and juice, cocktails sometimes .
