What are the health effects of drinking 1 beer a day? How bad would this be for my body and would areas of my health and life would this affect? Long term as well as short term.
Drinking one bear is actually not bad. It is called moderate drinking and in a nutshell, it is defined as consuming one drink a day for women and two for men. However, if you don’t drink now, you should not start drinking for health. A healthy lifestyle, including good nutrition and exercise, offers more benefits than moderate drinking. Another important point is that if, as a man, you choose to have two beers a day, it does not mean it’s okay to guzzle one after the other. Drinking just two beers -- or any alcoholic drink -- in one hour impairs judgment and doubles your chances of having a traffic or household accident.
There are several long and short-term effects of alcoholic consumption but they are determined by the number of drinks taken per day.
