We all absolutely love beer, that's not hard to agree on! But the after-taste a drinking session may leave is not to the same palate. Not to mention the long term effects on your body after drinking endless amounts of delicious liquids. How can we find a balance?
For most of us, drinking alcohol is just a part of life. We drink at social gatherings, we drink to celebrate, we drink to commiserate, we even drink at home. Sometimes we drink to get drunk, other times we just want a nice refreshing cold beer to relax, but do we really know how just a couple of beers can affect us?
Alcohol can have a tonne of unwanted side effects on the body. Alcohol is high in calories, which can result in weight gain. It's dehydrating. It can have a negative effect on mental health, and also effects your sleep. The list is endless. Alcohol is known to effect your concentration, judgement, mood and memory.
More seriously, drinking alcohol can increase your risk of stroke, increase blood pressure, increase the risk of stomach and bowel cancer, and reduce fertility.
