Alcohol depresses the central nervous system.
Consuming large amounts of alcohol in a brief period of time prohibits the
body’s ability to process it. While having a high blood alcohol content or BAC,
over a certain level is “legally drunk” the health risks of alcohol poisoning
far surpass any legal trouble the individual may create for themselves. Even if
it only happened one time, it could result in alcohol poisoning, loss of
consciousness, respiratory failure, coma and death.
Furthermore, individuals who binge drink on a
regular basis put themselves at an even higher risk for health complications
including liver disease, cirrhotic Ascites, brain disease, high blood pressure,
heart attack and stroke.
Women who become pregnant and struggle with
alcohol abuse put their unborn babies at risk for developing fetal alcohol
syndrome – a condition of physical and mental defects that have been associated
with women’s consumption of alcohol during pregnancy.
