Long-term alcohol abuse presents extraordinary risks to an alcoholic’s mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual well being. This may also lead to an individual’s profession, loved ones; alcoholism can cause permanent damage to the body:
  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Stomach
  • Nervous System
  • Brain
There are other medical side effects caused by alcoholism. Some of the common medical side effects include:
  • Cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Osteoporosis, particularly in women
  • Sexual problems
  • Stomach problems
Apart from the physical and mental symptoms, alcoholism may also cause social problems in an individual’s life. Being drunk at work may cause loss of job, leading a person and his family into a financial constraint. Further, alcohol misuse has been demonstrated to have caused domestic violence, conflicts in marriage, legal issues and segregation from friends and family.

Who doesn't already know this?

Carbonated soft drinks are also a significant health hazard for some folks. Moderation is important, and any health risk will be more pronounced for some folks than for others.
Agreed. Why to far Left and Right Wing extremists always seek to dictate to others?

Sorry if you lost someone but it's evolution in action; the weak winnow themselves from the human herd.

What do you propose to alter the course of Nature?

You're more likely to have a heart attack on a Monday…or up to three days after you've been diagnosed with the flu or a respiratory tract infection.

excellent idea for a thread.
Check this out.
Innovations in imaging technology have helped alcohol researchers study how alcohol damages internal organs, such as the brain and the liver. Using computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), researchers are finding direct effects of chronic drinking.

Imaging studies have revealed a consistent association between heavy drinking and physical brain damage, even in the absence of other usual symptoms of severe alcoholism—chronic liver disease or alcohol-induced dementia.
