http://alcoholabuseadvice.com/ The body loves to live in moderation. There are all kinds of studies on the wine drinking habits of people in Italy, the rice wine in Japan, and so on, talking about the beneficial effects of a moderate amount of things like red wine. When we go to the extreme, though, the body can be severely damaged. Alcohol abuse over time destroys the liver, kidneys, heart, digestive system, and brain, just to name a few. The body just cannot digest that much alcohol without being poisoned by the waste products it produces. The dehydration alone is enough to hurt the body. So please, enjoy alcohol in moderation!
