Aiding cancer health problems: The increased risk of alcohol abuse

Despite the risks that come with alcohol, it is one that is also abused globally. Surprisingly as addictive as it is, it is one of the biggest government source of revenue across the globe. Alcohol is aiding cancer health problems worse. Alcohol is the common term used or ethanol or ethyl which is a chemical substance commonly found in beer, wine, liquor, some medicines, mouthwashes, household products and other essential oils scented liquids taken from plants. There is no doubt that alcohol abuse is facilitating cancer risk as we will be discussing going forward.

Aiding cancer health problems: Alcohol content

And for value addition, we spoke to experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center. This facility was founded by doctor Dalal Akoury and currently, she is also the MD of the establishment. Together with her team of experts, they are going to help us put in perspective some of the concerns we have in relation to our topic of discussion today which is “facilitating cancer risk with alcohol abuse”. Besides that it will interest you to note that alcohol is produced by the fermentation of sugars and starches by yeast, it is equally important that we are aware of the main types of alcoholic drinks and their alcohol content. This is going to be very helpful to us as we explore the primary effects of alcohol to cancer and cancer patients. The alcohol content in various alcoholic beverages is as follows:

  • Beers and hard ciders: 3-7 percent alcohol
  • Wines, including sake: 9-15 percent alcohol
  • Wines fortified with liquors, such as port: 16-20 percent alcohol
  • Liquor, or distilled spirits, such as gin, rum, vodka, and whiskey, which are produced by distilling the alcohol from fermented grains, fruits, or vegetables: usually 35-40 percent alcohol (70-80 proof), but can be higher

According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, a standard alcoholic drink in the United States, for example, contains 14.0 grams (0.6 ounces) of pure alcohol. Generally, this unit of pure alcohol is found in

  • 12 ounces of beer
  • 8 ounces of malt liquor
  • 5 ounces of wine
  • 1.5 ounces or a “shot” of 80-proof liquor

Up to this point let me pose briefly and find out or justify why alcohol is the most abused drug globally besides facilitating cancer risks and other health problems. Take for instance according to the federal government’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 just five years ago, the federation position or definition of what should be considered to be moderate alcohol drinking is a maximum of one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men. Heavy alcohol drinking is defined as having more than three drinks on any day or more than seven drinks per week for women and more than four drinks on any day or more than 14 drinks per week for men. With that piece of information, you are now beginning to appreciate the realities of alcohol abuse. Ideally what is considered heavy drinking per week is equivalent to what most people consume in just two hours daily. If in just two hours one would take this much, translate that into a day then to a week, a month and a year. It thus explains why this is the most abused drug in our societies and so the biggest facilitating cancer risks among other health problems. We are certainly going to continue with this discussion in the next article but in the meantime, you can call doctor Akoury for further professional direction about alcohol abuse.

Miss managing alcohol use

Miss managing alcohol

Miss managing alcohol use is a serious threat to human life

Miss managing alcohol use: Accidents, suicide, and murder

Where I come from people making fun when they are taking their cherished drink that “this is time for one for the road”. Let me make it simpler, after a treacherous day of work, before you proceed home, you make a stopover for a drink with friends (one for the road). Many who have lavished this slogan have not been obedient to just take one, but they have wined and drunk they whole pocket dry. In the process, a lot of damage has taken place as a result of that slogan and today majority of deaths on our roads are facilitated by drink driving giving alcohol lead role in accidents, suicide, and crime. Does this ring a bell in your mind? It does to me and that brings me to the focus of this discussion ‘miss managing alcohol use consequences.” From our point of view as experts from AWAREMED Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD, a season like this (x-mass festivities) year in year out registers the most deaths on our roads globally. Take a look at some of the effects of alcohol;

  • Alcohol plays a major role in more than half of all automobile fatalities across the globe.
  • Alcohol-related automobile accidents are the leading causes of death in young people.
  • When it comes to alcohol we do not have favorable limits for safe drinking because two drinks can impair the ability to drive and even one drink may double the risk of injury, and more than four drinks increase the risk by 11 times, therefore, the only safe way is not drinking at all.
  • Alcoholism is the primary diagnosis in a quarter of all people who commit suicide.
  • Alcohol is implicated in over half of all murder cases, with this ratio of one to the one you can only desire to stop drinking.

Even before we bring it close to your doorstep the facts above are enough to motivate you to seek professional help from the experts at AWAREmed Health with doctor Akoury today. Don’t put your life on the line with peer slogan, one for the road because it could be one for the grave.

Miss managing alcohol use: Domestic violence

If you have been to the alcoholic residence, you may have noticed the elusiveness of peace and poor or no communication, conflicts, and suspicion. The members of such households are not independent and expressive than non-alcoholic households or even recovering alcoholic parents. Domestic violence is a common consequence of alcohol abuse.

Effect on Womenwomen often are the victims of domestic violence, they incur serious injuries from their male partners who are abusing alcohol

Effect on Children – Alcoholism in parents also increases the risk for violent behavior and abuse toward children. Children of alcoholic parents tend to do worse academically than others, have a higher incidence of depression, anxiety, and stress and lower self-esteem than their peers. In addition to their own inherited risk for later alcoholism, many children of alcoholics have serious coping problems that may last their entire life. Adult children of alcoholic parents are at higher risk for divorce and for psychiatric symptoms.

consequences of alcohol

Alcohol abuse kills many people globally

Alcohol abuse kills

Alcohol abuse kills many people globally and the time of helping alcoholism victims is now

Alcohol abuse kills many people globally: If this is so why legalize it?

If we say that alcohol is friendly and does not kill we are cheating ourselves because the truth is, alcohol abuse kills. Many people have fallen due to their abuse of this substance and that makes us wonder why this killer substance is not illegal like other illicit drugs. We may not understand why, but we are going to continue highlighting the bad sides so that you can make very informed decisions for yourself. Speaking to the experts at AWAREmed health and wellness resource center, doctor Dalal Akoury MD, agrees with the findings of the World Health organization, that alcohol is killing more than 3 million people globally each year translating to one person every 10 seconds. Does that scare you? The picture illustrated by these statistics is that more than the population of people losing their lives due to AIDS, tuberculosis, and violence put together die as a result of alcohol. It must be made clear that these statistics includes alcohol-related driving fatalities, violence, and health issues arising from excessive alcohol consumption.

Alcohol abuse kills many people globally: Understanding how alcohol kills

Because alcohol is legal in most countries, and because especially in the US and western culture, in general, it is promoted in advertising and glamorized in the film, its dangers are often minimized or disregarded by young people, and the warnings about problem drinking and its consequences are viewed as the admonitions of uptight grown-ups. Unfortunately, the facts support the admonitions. So, how can alcohol kill you? Here are a few ways it can and does end lives:

  • Drink driving accounted for ten thousand deaths in 2010 that was over thirty percent of all traffic fatalities. For how long will we be losing lives because somebody is sitting on their jobs, the authority, the drivers, passengers and the other general public must work and pool together to reduce deaths on our roads.
  • It is estimated that an acute alcohol poisoning kills over one thousand people each year.
  • The available findings from a study done about some years ago indicated that sixteen thousand people died in 2010 from an alcohol-induced liver disease.
  • Over fifty percent of people who die in fires have high blood-alcohol levels.
  • One-quarter of all emergency room admissions, one-third of all suicides and more than half of all homicides and incidents of domestic violence are alcohol-related.
  • Unintentional injuries related to alcohol consumption cause over eighteen hundred deaths each year among college students.
  • Health problems, including increased likelihood of stroke, diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, esophageal cancer, and compromised immune system can lead, if untreated, to premature death.
  • Alcohol in combination with other drugs, especially pain medications, tranquilizers, and sleep medications, can cause death by slowing down respiration as well as by causing the aspiration of vomit.

Finally, addicts may not understand what is at stake, because to them alcohol is all they know as solutions to their problems. Nevertheless, though there are some temporal benefits of using alcohol, the bigger picture is evident that alcohol is a killer. That is why we need to pool together and health our people from wasting their lives to this scourge. Therefore, if you are struggling with this problem, you can schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury today for the commencement of your recovery process.

Drug addiction disorders and cancer have nothing good in common

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: Alcohol use and alcoholism

In dealing with drug addiction disorders and cancer disease one patient one asked “does the type of drink matter?” in responds doctor Dalal Akoury says that, it is important to appreciate that ethanol is the type of alcohol found in alcoholic drinks, whether they are beers, wines, or liquors (distilled spirits). These drinks contain different percentages of ethanol, but in general, a standard size drink of any type 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor contains about the same amount of ethanol (about half an ounce). Of course, larger or ‘stronger’ drinks can contain more ethanol than this. Overall, it is all about the amount of alcohol consumed over time, not the type of alcoholic beverage, seems to be the most important factor in raising cancer risk. Most evidence suggests that it is the ethanol that increases the risk, not other things in the drink.

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: How alcohol raise cancer risk

From the experts’ point of view, doctor Dalal Akoury having been in this practice for well over two decades reiterates that, as things stand now, the exact way alcohol affects cancer risk isn’t completely understood. In fact, there might be several different ways it can raise risk, and this might depend on the type of cancer complication in question as we are going to see following. And as we make that progress, it will interest you to note that in order to effectively help addicts recover from their difficulties, Dr. Akoury made a decision to create a medical center whose main objective is to transform each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power. Matters of this magnitude needs serious and professionalism in treatment and that is why doctor Akoury’s practice focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms. You can reach her on telephone number 843 213 1480 for an appointment and any other concerns you may be having.

Drug addiction disorders and cancer: Damage to body tissues

Finally, alcohol can act as an irritant, especially in the mouth and throat. Cells that are damaged may try to repair themselves, which could lead to DNA changes in the cells that can be a step toward cancer. In the colon and rectum, bacteria can convert alcohol into large amounts of acetaldehyde which is a chemical that has been shown to cause cancer in lab animals. Alcohol and its byproducts can also damage the liver, leading to inflammation and scarring. As liver cells try to repair the damage, they can end up with mistakes in their DNA, which could lead to cancer. We are going to continue this discussion in our subsequent postings and we want to take this opportunity to encourage you to stay with us on the link and learn with the experts.
