Avoid Excessive Drinking

Do you consume more than one alcoholic beverage a day? If so, you may be at risk for increasing your chances of developing liver or kidney disease or cancer. One a day is fine (two for men), but anything beyond that can cause health problems.

In addition, alcoholic binge drinking has been connected to sugar addiction. Alcoholic beverages contain high amounts of processed carbohydrates and studies show that children who consistently eat poor diets and are nutritionally deficient in younger years are more likely to develop alcoholic habits and tendencies during adolescence and young adult years.
