Drinking alcohol and obesity are the sources of causing liver and other diseases

Excessive alcohol drinking and obesity are the sources of damaging the liver. These reports have been published in the British Medical Journal by universities of Oxford and Glasgow in two separate researches. The medical experts have reported that excessive alcoholic drinking is the source of causing liver diseases. Those people who, however, are not used to drinking but are obese (having excessive fat on the body), their liver is also likely to be damaged. (daily Express, Lahore, March 19, 2010).

Excessive and long term use of alcohol may damage almost every organ and system in the body. It may also cause various ailments like cardiovascular diseases, mal-absorption, hypertension cancer and alcoholism. For controlling diseases caused by drinking alcohol it is recommended to refrain totally from drinking. Some health scientists have recommended taking certain low quantity of alcohol for controlling coronary heart diseases. However, it is still reported to be debatable. To be on the safer side one should try not to indulge in drinking.

In addition to causing liver disease, obesity has also been reported to be detrimental to health and causing many body ailments. Such common diseases are heart disease, liver damage, diabetes, breathing difficulties, certain types of cancer and arthritis. For treatment of obesity it is recommended to have diet control, do physical exercise and drinking lemon and grapefruit juice.
