The Active Times-logotyp Av Hristina Byrnes av The Active Times | Bild 1 av 20: <p>Alcohol is killing Americans at a record rate, with excessive alcohol use accounting for over 88,000 deaths per year in the U.S. Drinking too much has led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost each year from 2006 until 2010, <a href="https://www.theactivetimes.com/healthy-living/lifestyle-wellness/unexpected-ways-add-years-your-life"><strong>shortening the lives</strong></a> of those who died by an average of 30 years, <a href="https://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/fact-sheets/alcohol-use.htm"><strong>according</strong></a> to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. No one can argue the benefits of moderate alcohol consumption – it reduces the risk of <a href="http://www.theactivetimes.com/content/12-diseases-doctors-most-often-misdiagnose/slide-4"><strong>developing heart disease</strong></a>, stroke, and <a href="https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110816112134.htm"><strong>even dementia</strong></a>. But excessive drinking can only cause harm. Over time, excessive alcohol use can lead to the development of chronic diseases and other serious problems.</p>

Farorna med överdriven alkoholkonsumtion

Ingen kan argumentera mot fördelarna av måttlig alkoholkonsumtion - de minskar risken för att utveckla hjärtsjukdom, stroke och till och med demens. Medan överdrivet drickande enbart kan orsaka skada. Över tiden kan överdriven alkoholanvändning leda till kroniska sjukdomar och andra allvarliga problem.
