The destructive effects of alcohol on your body

We’ve all read those recommended daily alcohol guidelines on the side of the bottle, but do we truly understand WHY we should limit the amount of units we drink?

Perhaps one of the best ways to get our heads around the government’s lower risk guidelines for alcohol (men should not regularly exceed three to four units per day and two to three units for women) is to understand how alcohol actually affects our bodies.

This eye-opening infographic from Healthline does exactly that; giving a thorough account of how alcohol affects virtually every part of our bodies. From shrinking our frontal lobes, to damaging the heart muscle – alcohol has the potential to wreak havoc on our anatomy.
