Power of Drinking Responsibly


No amount of alcohol can be considered safe, and all alcohol use raises the risk of cancer and weight gain, according to Health Direct.

Heavy and binge drinking can have a variety of short-term negative effects on the body, such as headaches, nausea, loss of memory, coordination, and judgement, as well as dizziness and vomiting. Those who are inebriated also have a higher risk of getting into accidents or hurting other people.
