Opinions about alcohol are divided. Some scientists say that alcohol is good, others that it is bad. How to understand what can be consumed and what not?
The effect of alcoholic beverages on the body
Since antiquity, wine has been considered a very healthy drink, as Hippocrates, the chief physician of those times, wrote about this. He believed that everything can be cured with a wine drink. But, no matter how Hippocrates said, there is no escaping the consequences of taking alcoholic beverages.
Scientists have proven that alcohol can only become harmless when it is not abused. You should also take into account all the main consequences that alcohol in small quantities can cause. For example, alcohol cannot be harmless when a person has diseases of the digestive, cardiovascular, nervous and endocrine systems. If a person has a predisposition to alcohol addiction, then naturally, alcohol is enemy number one for him. Alcohol can ideally be consumed by a healthy person.
The truth that everyone and everyone should learn is that there is no harmless alcohol and never will be.
Some people are sure that with the help of alcohol you can increase immunity, relieve stress, strengthen your psychological health, and improve your mood. It is sometimes even believed that alcohol has some of the properties that drugs have.
The benefits of alcohol
The main reason why very competent experts do not recommend drinking alcohol is lesions of internal organs. Alcohol in small amounts can be beneficial. For example, alcohol can increase muscle tone, remove atherosclerotic plaques, normalize the resorption of blood clots, and reduce the number of fat cells. Some drinks are even used to prevent heart disease.
Experts advise to use wines, both red and white, not just on occasion, but to introduce the use into a regular diet. Some French experts believe that a glass of wine every day is better than antibiotic treatment for seven days. However, such treatment is possible only if the person does not have serious pathologies.
You need to understand that alcohol, namely its large amount, harms the body and nothing more. And then alcohol is no longer a medicine, but a poison.
Wine treatment should not be combined with the use of any medications, and the dose should not be increased with each session. Although wine is considered a female alcoholic drink, it should not be consumed during pregnancy and lactation.
On bottles with alcohol, inscriptions increasingly began to appear warning of possible harm to health. Strict rules have been established for the quality and sale of alcoholic beverages, which clearly speaks of the dangers of their use.
