"Light" cocktails - hard problems

In Russia, they are well aware of the consequences of drinking hard liquor. But even innocent cocktails should be feared

New Research

Of course, none of the cocktail lovers consider themselves a person addicted to alcohol. Meanwhile, regular drinking of alcoholic beverages, even seemingly completely innocent ones, leads to serious he alth problems. The risk of cancer and heart disease, depression and psychological dependence increases.

The most common reason women drink alcohol is to relieve stress. And drinking does have a similar effect, but only in the short term. Alcohol depresses the central nervous system, slows down the heartbeat, makes breathing deeper, and calms the psyche. However, all these seemingly positive effects quickly pass, and are replaced by directly opposite ones. The level of adrenaline and cortisone in the blood jumps sharply, which makes the woman feel even more depressed. It's like warming up in the cold with alcohol - at first it becomes very warm, and then a person freezes much faster than those people who did not drink.

Women's bodies are more vulnerable to alcohol than men's due to their higher body fat percentage and lower water content. All this leads to the fact that women are poisoned by alcohol faster than men. The weaker sex also gets sick with heart disease and liver dysfunction much faster.
