How much can you drink without harming your health

Сколько можно употреблять алкоголя, не вредя здоровью

The maximum dose of alcohol that you can drink a week without health consequences is 100 grams of pure alcohol.

Scientists at the British heart disease Foundation conducted the study, which involved more than half a million people from 19 countries. The study revealed that even moderate drinking can cause premature death, which can cause stroke, aneurysm and other diseases.

But maximum dose of alcohol that you can drink a week without health consequences is 100 grams of pure alcohol, which is about 2.5 liters of beer with a strength of 4 per cent or 875 milliliters of wine with a strength of 13 percent.

Exceeding this limit by half contributes to the reduced life expectancy of at least 1-2 years. The use of more than 350 grams of pure alcohol per week will shorten the life of 4-5 years.

The scientists added that alcohol consumption is associated with the development of various cardiovascular diseases: stroke, heart failure, aortic aneurysm, hypertensive disease with a primary lesion of the heart.
