In the last century, beer was often prescribed to men who had undergone surgery - to "raise the tone". With the help of this drink, it was also recommended to gain weight after a long illness. However, today it has already been proven that regular consumption of beer in large quantities has a destructive effect on the entire body.
Excessive beer consumption increases the risk of heart disease. It is very quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, and with it carbon dioxide enters the bloodstream, which causes varicose veins. The heart becomes less mobile, gradually becomes overgrown with fat and begins to increase in size - a "beer" or "bullish" heart is formed. Thus, the threat of heart attack, coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction increases.
Beer has a negative effect on the liver, which cleanses the body of toxins and decay products from vital processes, and also produces the necessary glucose and performs other vital functions. With regular consumption of beer, there is a risk of developing hepatitis. Esters, methanol and aldehydes contained in beer increase the likelihood of a disease leading to death - cirrhosis of the liver.
The carbon dioxide in beer irritates the stomach walls, which causes excess hydrochloric acid to form. As a result, the general acidity increases and there is a threat of gastritis, ulcers and even stomach cancer. Often, after drinking this drink, heartburn, bloating and indigestion occur, resulting in constipation. Consuming it in large volumes also causes an enlargement of the stomach - as a result of the constant feeling of hunger, a "beer" belly begins to grow.
Drinking beer has a detrimental effect on human kidneys. When a large amount of this drink enters the body, vital vitamins and microelements are excreted from the body with urine. As a result of a lack of these elements, the activity of the brain is disrupted, immunity weakens, weakness and insomnia appear. Since a large amount of fluid is driven through the kidneys, a violation of the acid-base balance occurs. This violation in the future may be the cause of the appearance of serious diseases of the urinary system.
