Alcohol and Health


We are having a cold and damp day today, but inside it is quiet pleasant!

Alcohol has systemic effect on Liver and Immune system. It causes replacement of healthy liver tissue with scar tissue. As a result it impairs liver function, which can eventually lead to fatal bleeding.

Alcohol causes immune deficiency and as a result renders body defenseless and prone to infection.

Now in the area of my profession, oral health, alcohol can have devastating effects. It can cause oral Cancer. One of its by-product in the body is acetaldehyde which is potent carcinogen.

Alcohol causes oral ulceration, necrotizing gingivitis and candidal infection. By reducing salivary flow and reducing immune response together with poor nutrition intake and carcinogenic by-products of alcohol, it renders one prone to periodontal disease and caries.

Avoid unnecessary pain by not drinking!

Lets hope it helps. To be continued…
