Q: Is drinking alcohol everyday bad for health?
A:Drinking alcohol is certainly not good for health, especially if it is overdone. One drink daily does not cause any ill effect per se, but if consumed for a long time, alcohol can lead to liver damage. A standard bottle of alcohol contains about 240g of alcohol. A normal human cannot metabolise more than 170g of alcohol per day. However, it does not take long for casual consumption to become a habit, thus you should try and avoid it. The more well known effects of chronic alcohol consumption are conditions like minimisation of brain function, cancer of the digestive tract, chronic pancreatitis and bone marrow depression. The lifespan of alcoholics also tends to be lower than that of non-alcoholics.
