Avoid Excessive Alcohol Intake
Excessive alcohol consumption is related to increased blood triglycerides level, high blood pressure, stroke, increased body weight, liver problem, abnormal heart rhythms, and some cancers.
Some studies have shown that moderate alcohol consumption might produce some benefits among heart failure patients; however the results are inconclusive. Therefore, given the possible health risks associated with drinking, it is recommended that people who do not consume any alcohol should not start drinking.
Consult your dietitian or doctor on the benefits and risks of consuming alcohol in moderation.
