Taking alcohol and beverages on a daily basis is becoming the order of the day. In the new lifestyle which people are leading everyday, taking alcohol after a hard day’s work or savoring new cock tails in some party are very common these days. People know the side effects of alcohol consumption but what they don’t know is that in a new study it has been found out that alcohol is not only damaging to the liver but also to the other parts of the body.

Researchers in the Loyola Institute have found out the other harmful effects of alcohol consumption. Alcohol actually weakens the immune system of the body, it can increase the risk of HIV, affects the bones of the body and decreases recovery of the bones, burns and bleeding in the body.

A group of 50 members had participated in the test of the alcohol which gave the result that alcohol actually harms other body parts apart from the liver. The researchers are hoping that after this study might actually open the eyes of the people to the harmful effects of alcohol drinking.

The Director of Alcohol Research Program and Associate Director of Burn and Shock Trauma Institute, Loyola University, Elizabeth J. Kovacs when asked said that the best way to take care of one’s body and prevent any long damage is to not drink alcohol at all. It is high time that people understand that alcohol should not be made a part and parcel of life as it kills the body, slowly an surely.
