Garbutt, MD, professor of psychiatry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, the alcohol does all kinds of things in the body and we cannot fully aware of all its effects. A researcher at the university’s Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies also says that “Alcohol is a pretty complicated little molecules.” Depending on whom you ask, alcohol is can be a blessing or a curse. Even Harvard School of Public Health calls it “both a tonic and a poison,” depending on the dose. Besides that, Chris Sorek, DrinkAware also says that drinking too much of any alcoholic drink can have a number of undesirable short and long-term effects. Research has already found that the alcohol consumption is linked to more than 60 diseases.
According to the Harvest, more than 100 scientific studies show that a glass of red wine per day can reduce the risk of heart disease. This is because it contains high concentration of polyphenols that can reduce blood pressure. However if you binge-drink which means you consume more than five drinks in two hours, the rates of high blood pressure will increase and you’re more likely to have a stroke.
