Alcohol and the Body
Knowing the consequences..
First, alcohol effects the digestive system. When you drink, your risk of getting mouth, esophagus, and stomach cancer goes up. Also the alcohol injures the lining of your stomach and causes ulcers. Drinking alcohol can also cause malnutrition. Malnutrition is when the body does not get enough nutrients required for your health.
