If you are curious as to the effects of alcohol on the body, this could be the most eye-opening article you will ever read. Many of us associate the effects of alcohol on the body with the heart, lungs, liver, brain, memory, etc. Furthermore, if asked about effects of drinking alcohol in terms of our fitness goals, most people will let you know about the infamous beer belly.

The fact is that people don't need to know the good side, because there are hardly any people that you need to convince to drink! However having said I must said that most things are in some degree harmful for the body! I trick, I believe is to balance it all out. Too much of anything is bad! So drink up but stay in line!

also, there's plenty of evidence out there that supports the idea that chronic alcohol consumption contributes to low bone density and the inhibition of new bone formation/remodelling/fracture healing. having said that, i still drink and train, but to the anon. poster above.. the negative effects of drinking a la NZ booze culture style FAR outweigh any would-be positives. It's like saying smoking is good for your health because the temporary increase in blood pressure increases core body temp and therefore metabolism. don't kid yourself. if you're happy drinking.. keep drinking.

Anything that we put into our bodies is detrimental in some way - alcohol just happens to be something that we tend to over do... It has been said time and time again, but New Zealand's drinking culture is far more to blame than the contents of a glass of wine or pint of beer. Society has been drinking alcohol (beer) as far back as history tells, and when consumed in moderation it has never had an overly negative impact on our lives. The issue is to identify a way to encourage a European style culture where one or two drinks is fine but any more than that and you risk being ostracised by your peers. I digress.

I'm in recovery (alcoholic) and only been sober 3 months, there are so many more pro's to being sober and wow what a difference - I lost 7 kgs in 2 months, it's so nice not waking up with a hangover every morning! I take my hat off to those who can drink socially and not feel they have to get pissed, I think drinking in moderation is fine (for those who can), just as it is with everything we do - in moderation it's okay...

I think there needs to be more awareness of the damage alcohol can do and more advertising for where to go if you or someone you know has a drinking problem. The problem is the young people that think it's impressive to drink more than they possibly can and they don't understand that it kills nor the damage it does when you're older. Another one of the problems is people who have depression and just don't care about the damage it is doing to them, not realising that one day when they've got their life back on track, it might hit them then and cause health problems.

Alcohol is such an addictive drug. One or two wines or beers if fine, and enjoyable, but why is it necessary to just keep drinking until every bottle or can is empty? It's sad to watch :(
