Healthy Beverage in Moderation
Too much beer in the daily eating plan can equal a keg of extra pounds on the human body - but when it is used in moderation at the table - or as a refreshing beverage during the day, then it can be a healthy part of the adult diet.
Take note that all beverages that contain alcohol are hard on the liver and they are much like adding an irritating element to the eye or another sensitive area of the body.
All too often, the emphasis is placed on heart health, but without the liver - we cannot live. And it's not only alcoholic based beverages which impact its state of health; it's also over the counter medications taken over the years.
The human liver acts likes a sifter; it collects all of the impurities that flow into it. When the daily diet is of the most healthy variety, things keep running smoothly along. But when too much fat or too much alcohol become part of the norm, the liver is in turn damaged.
Luckily for us, it can heal on its own given time. But if we keep abusing it - then it can reach a point to where nothing will heal it completely except a transplant, and those are very expensive, very difficult to come by, accompanied by a lot of discomfort and when the patient has an alcohol addiction, they aren't going to be a good candidate for the transplant, not when there is a young person who is dying and in need of such with their whole life before them.
Therefore, because alcohol is such an addictive element - if you do indulge, do so rarely and make sure that is doesn't become an addiction.
