Fatty liver disease. Doctor Kutyshov named the dangerous consequences of drinking vodka

Toxicologist Mikhail Kutushov: drinking vodka can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Vodka is the most popular strong alcoholic drink among Russians, but doctor Kutushov stated that its use is associated with a number of health risks and dangerous consequences in the form of irreversible organ damage. In particular, taking large doses of vodka can have a destructive effect on the liver and provoke the appearance of fatty degeneration.

“Due to uncontrolled consumption of alcohol, the risk of developing fatty degeneration, cirrhosis and even liver cancer increases,” Kutushov said in a commentary “”.
The doctor also named other dangerous consequences of drinking vodka in excessive quantities – gastritis, ulcers, pancreatitis. In addition, the kidneys and immune system are affected. Kutushov drew attention to the fact that people who abuse alcohol become exposed to a very high risk of vascular accidents, including myocardial infarction and cerebral stroke.

“Alcohol increases blood pressure,” the doctor advised to remember.
He noted that the toxins released during the breakdown of vodka have a negative effect on the nervous system and contribute to the development of cognitive problems and memory impairment. With frequent alcohol consumption, mental disorders and negative personality changes are highly likely to occur.

“Alcohol abuse is extremely dangerous, as it increases the risk of developing addiction, depression and anxiety,” the expert postulated.
