Most of the men all around the world love to drink Alcohol. But keep in mind, that the excess of anything is always dangerous, so same is the situation with alcohol intake.

But, if you consume alcohol regularly and in excess then undoubtedly it will influence your health adversely.

A large amount of alcohol intake on regular basis gives rise to the problems like atherosclerosis, which means a deposition of the plaque in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. This may end up with a heart stroke or heart attack too. The excessive intake of alcohol on regular basis will harm almost each and every organ and system in the body. Liver diseases and cancer are found to be very common among the alcoholic individuals. Mental and behavioral diseases are general causes of the alcohol intake because the person loses his mental balance after the intake of alcohol.

These cellular impairments lead to increased susceptibility to serious complications from lung disease. Anemia, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis are also the causes of the excessive alcohol intake. Indeed alcohol consumption has been linked to more than 60 diseases.
Alcohol intake in the moderate amount and if done occasionally is beneficial for the health. But, everybody must be thinking how to discriminate between the excessive intake and moderate intake of alcohol. Here is the difference, taking alcohol occasionally that is once or twice in a month and taking only one pack of it at a time, is certainly moderate intake and will benefit your health. But, taking it daily with more than 100 ml is certainly going to make you prone to many of the health hazardous. It is observed in men that who use to take alcohol may be on alternate days become addicted and then they need alcohol daily and in large amount. This way of alcohol intake is just like developing a path for your early death. Yes, early death (before 30 years of age) is observed in many cases who were taking excessive alcohol regularly. So, if you want to live a healthy life then it is a necessary task that you should cut off the alcohol intake.
Limited consumption: Moderate intake of alcohol is found to be good for the bone protection. It has been observed during a study that men or women who take a very little amount of alcohol have very strong bones than the other who either don’t take alcohol at all or take alcohol excessively. As is said life is a balance, so to live life to its best, we also need to have a balance in the every aspect of the life. Balance your alcohol intake and it will benefit you, but if you mismanage it then it will certainly show you the adverse effects of it. More alcohol intake is certainly going to damage your health and the heart problems are the most common effect of it. It has been observed that alcohol intake reduces the capacity of your heart to perform its function. This results in the heart failure and simultaneously to death if you don’t cut off the alcohol intake.
Alcohol intake has more bad effects on human health in comparison to positive effects. So, even we can conclude the avoiding the alcohol intake permanently is the best choice to remain away from the adverse consequences of alcohol intake. Alcohol intake is also habit forming, so we should best avoid it. Avoiding the alcohol intake is your way to live a healthy life. But, as we know if you are addicted to alcohol intake it is very hard to give up this habit. So, to such individual I would suggest that you can take the alcohol but please reduce the amount and frequency of alcohol intake, even counseling sessions would be very helpful to such individual.

Antabuse Generic and Revia are such medicines. Disulfiram is a drug used to support the treatment of chronic alcoholism by producing an acute sensitivity to alcohol.
