The Wonders of Alcohol

Ahhh alcohol. Some steer clear of it, while others have made it a part of their daily routine. We know how it makes us feel, but what is it actually doing to our bodies?

You know that your favorite alcoholic beverage is loaded with calories, but what else? There are many other effects of alcohol that you may have never considered. EatingWell.com has a great article on these specifics and breaks the issue down nicely. Click here to view the article.

From dehydration to increasing the risk of breast cancer, alcohol has a wide range of effects that we should all be aware of. This entry is not intended to put a damper on your partying habits or hinder your enjoyment of a few adult beverages. Instead it is intended to help you become aware of what is actually going on with your body when you consume these "adult beverages."
