The Dangers Of Alcohol

The Dangers of Alcohol

It is important to be aware of the dangers of alcohol and especially excess drinking.

  • Alcohol slows the functioning of the limbic system of your brain, which controls emotions such as anxiety and fear
  • The functioning of your prefrontal cortex, a brain region associated with reasoning and judgment, also slows when you drink alcohol
  • At high doses, alcohol may cause the neurons in your brain that control your heart rate and breathing to slow down their communication to the point that your breathing stops completely, leading to death
