I ran across a very informative article the other day by Emmanuel Rubin, entitled "How Alcohol Damages the Body - Perspectives on Current Research". Although the research is a few years old, it is easy to see that the evidence has been piling up against alcohol consumption for a long time. Rubin went into great detail on why and how alcohol is so bad for the human body, and how it damages it in almost every way possible.
Most of us are aware of the immense harm alcohol does to the liver, but the article goes on to explain that alcohol can be just as deadly to our muscle tissue (which includes the heart), our sexual ability and sexual organs (including testicular atrophy), our brains, and even down to our individual cells. In fact, alcohol damages the body in just about every conceivable way.
Fortunately, the human body is a miracle of design, able to repair itself from almost any damage we force upon it, and this includes damage from alcohol. And the sooner we arm ourselves with the kind of knowledge in Rubin's article the easier it becomes to once-and-for-all remove alcohol from our lives.
If you need a few additional health reasons to stop drinking alcohol see my article Reasons to Quit Drinking Alcohol. If you are not sure that you presently have the strength to quit or cut back right drinking, please read Take Action to Overcome Alcoholism, and make up your mind to do something today about your addiction - no matter how small of an action you take.
Let your body heal itself by refusing to drink any more alcohol. You'll be glad you did.
