Alcohol related health risks

Alcohol's hidden harms usually only emerge after a number of years. And by then, serious health problems can have developed:

  • Liver problems
  • Reduced fertility
  • High blood pressure
  • Increased risk of various cancers
  • Heart attack

All of the above are just some of the numerous harmful effects that we can develop by regularly drinking above the recommended levels.

People also argue a lot when they're drinking, which can negatively affect their relationships with family and friends.

The effects of alcohol on our health will depend on how much we drink. The more we drink, the greater the health risk we take. In terms of risks, drinkers can be divided into three categories: 

  • Lower-risk drinkers 
  • Increasing-risk drinkers
  • Higher-risk drinkers
