Do you engage in binge drinking? It’s bad for your vital organs and generally affects your health negatively. This is what happens to some of your organs when you binge drink: Eyes: Alcohol causes blood vessels in the eyes to dilate, making them bleary and bloodshot – not a good look, and long term affects your eyesight.
Brain: Just one heavy drinking session can cause severe memory problems during hangovers – and starves the body of vitamin B1, which is essential for good concentration. Long term heavy drinking damages the brain.
Breasts: Regular drinking binges can increase your risk of breast cancer by up to 40 percent, according to a major study reported in the British Journal of cancer. This risk is increased if you have a family history of breast cancer.
Heart: Binge drinking causes a surge in blood pressure, and can lead to palpitations. Heavy drinkers are at increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
Skin: Heavy drinking dehydrates your body and the skin is one of the first areas to suffer – ending up dry, peeling and cracked. Heavy drinking ages the skin – look at most heavy drinkers, they look older than they really are.
