Heart attack: Drinking this amount of alcohol could trigger the deadly condition

A heart attack can be life threatening. The deadly condition occurs when a blood clot forms inside the artery after a fatty deposit has broken off from the artery wall. The heart is essentially a pump that keeps blood moving around the body. It delivers oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body and also carries away unwanted carbon dioxide and waste products. Drinking more alcohol than the UK Chief Medical Officers (CMO) recommends could increase your risk of developing heart disease.

Abusing alcohol, whether it is heavy drinking, binge drinking or alcohol use disorder can lead to a heart attack because of extensive damage to the cardiovascular system.

It’s important for a person to understand different levels of alcohol abuse and how drinking more servings of alcohol than “moderate” drinking can cause physical damage.

If a person drinks regularly, they might feel like alcohol doesn’t affect them as much, but this usually means the person has developed a tolerance to some of the dangerous effects.

Those who drink regularly and consume more than the recommended amount are strongly advised to cut down or stop drinking completely to reduce their risk of a heart attack.
