The question of if or if not, whether or not if alcohol is a toxic agent or a blessing to us human is an ongoing steady debate and today I would like to give my thoughts on it. Most of the previous blog post always has a funky vide toward it, but as the year has just begun and we at Myshayo.com are advocating for individuals to drink responsibly and so we are dropping this blog post here. Don’t worry, it is short and you would be done reading it before you know it. Let us start by saying this.
Story Story ! Once Upon a time.
From the time of the old, humans have been drinking fermented beverages, they’ve also been arguing about their merits and demerits. The debate still simmers today, with a lively back-and-forth over whether alcohol is good for you or bad for you. especially with the involvement of religion that sometimes now discredit the intake of alcohol.
It’s safe to say that alcohol is both a tonic and a poison. The difference lies mostly in the dose. Moderate drinking seems to be good for the heart and circulatory system and probably protects against type 2 diabetes and gallstones.
Heavy drinking is a major cause of preventable death in most countries. DUI(driving under the influence) has been one of the major causes of fatal accidents in Nigeria and the world at large. Heavy drinking can damage the liver and heart, harm an unborn child, increase the chances of developing breast and some other cancers, contribute to depression and violence, and interfere with relationships.
On the lighter note, alcohol consumption has a two-phase nature. It can help anyone discover their hidden talent in about couple of minutes and also can act a source of inspiration to help people stay active and productive. The active ingredient in alcoholic beverages, a simple molecule called ethanol, affects the body in many different ways. It directly influences the stomach, brain, heart, gallbladder, and liver. It affects levels of lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) and insulin in the blood, as well as inflammation and coagulation. It also alters mood, concentration, and coordination.
So is Alcohol intake Bad ?
Well, it all boils down to you as an individual, how you take it, how often you take it or not. we all drink responsible and active, the topic of alcohol if alcohol is bad or not, won’t even be a topic
