Alcohol

The third leading cause of death in the nation is alcohol. You get the same amount of alcohol, about 0.6 ounces, in 12 ounces regular/light beer, 5 ounces of wine, and 1.5 ounces of hard liquor. You should always drink in moderation. Women should limit alcohol per day to 1 serving, and men should limit their alcohol intake to 2 servings per day. 

Why is there a difference between men and women? Women have higher proportion of body fat than men do, and fat cannot absorb alcohol, so it is not broken down before entering the bloodstream. Women absorb 30% more alcohol in their bloodstream than men.

Health and Wellness Tip

Laugh every day.  It can release endorphins, the healing hormones, and act as the body’s natural pain killer.  Rent a funny movie or call a friend that makes you laugh.  This can lower your blood pressure and boost your immune system.
