If you are someone who binges on Alcohol, it’s about time you stopped it. It was found in a new research that excessive consumption of alcoholic drinks can lead to the formation of plaque in the arteries.
The arteries can be partially or completely blocked due to this and in turn, reduce the blood flow. If you haven’t guessed it already, this leads to heart attack in the long run..
“Alcohol overconsumption can put your heart at risk. Excess alcohol can directly damage the heart muscle and cause arrythmia (irregular beating of the heart). It is also a contributing factor for weight gain, high triglycerides and blood pressure, and strokes. It is imperative to avoid binge drinking and keep one or more alcohol-free days every week. The symptoms of CAD may begin to show up only after a long time and by then, there could already be a significant blockage in your heart.” One of the researchers noted.
