You can’t deny — it’s everywhere. Alcohol grabs more than its fair share of headlines for both its purported health benefits and risks.
Here’s what we know for sure about alcohol:
- Excessive amounts of alcohol on a regular basis are linked with a host of health issues, including cancers and liver disease.
- Alcohol can stifle your weight loss, because it is high in calories at 7 calories per gram.
- It also tends to lower your inhibitions, making that late-night kebab or pizza much more appealing.
