Sodium in Alcoholic Beverages

Drinks Containing Alcohol Minimal in Sodium Milligrams

Well - that's the great news! But of course, whenever we're dealing with an addictive element, there are risks posed to our good health.

Unfortunately, the properties of alcohol pose significant habit-forming risks.

While one or two drinks might be safe, the liver has difficulty functioning when that third drink comes into the picture.

And for some individuals - even one drink can spell trouble for the liver.

Liver, the Filter of the Human Body

Like the kidneys, the liver functions in great part as a filter. When we intake foods or beverages containing alcohol, it clogs the filtering process - making it difficult to impossible for the liver to strain out the harmful toxins.

Food Addiction, a Habit More Powerful Than Alcohol Addiction

While drinking in excess presents serious risks for the body, including an addiction - being addicted to food is the most difficult habit to overcome.

With spirits and other drugs, the individual can put them out of sight - so they stay far from temptation. However, where food is involved - we must eat to live.

Each day, the person addicted to food must face 2-3 meals per day - while resisting snacks throughout their day. We must eat to live - but when we eat more than our body uses - we eat to die earlier than our time.
