Alcohol - an underestimated health risk?
Alcohol, actually ethanol, is a narcotic drug that is legal to consume in most countries of the world. In Western countries, it is the most dominant drug and has been consumed since before the time of written records. Despite its high addictive potential, alcohol is accepted in society. This is precisely why it is often underestimated. This is because the numerous consequences of consumption have a negative impact on our health, not only on our body but also on our psyche. Organ damage, cancer and dementia as well as depression, addiction and social isolation are just a few of the many consequences and risks of alcohol consumption.
