  • Individuals suffering from alcohol problems or alcoholism at any point in their lifetime experience income reductions ranging from 1.5% to 18.7%, depending on age and sex, compared with those with no such diagnosis.
  • Alcohol blocks some of the messages trying to get to the brain which can alter a person's perceptions, emotions, movement, vision, and hearing.
  • The consequences of alcohol misuse are serious-in many cases, life threatening. Heavy drinking can increase the risk for certain cancers, especially those of the liver, esophagus, throat, and larynx (voice box).
  • When alcohol is consumed into the body it is converted to acetaldehyde in the liver. Acetaldehyde is a toxic substance that can be harmful to the body. For the normal drinker, the liver quickly coverts acetaldehyde into a substance called acetic acid. Acetic acid does not have the same toxic or harmful qualities as acetaldehyde. The body then converts acetic acid into carbon dioxide and water which is released through the body´┐Ż's urinary and respiratory systems.
