Excessive alcohol use is harmful for any person, but healthy people can afford drinking a little during the holidays. However, alcohol is forbidden for some people who have health problems.
For instance, people with chronic liver diseases, with chronic hepatitis, must not drink alcohol at all.
For such patients, even a very small dose of alcohol can be fatal, doctors say.
Alcohol is also prohibited in chronic pancreatitis, as it is impossible to predict the reaction of pancreas to alcohol.
As for other people, experts remind you that you should not abuse alcohol, even if you consider yourself a healthy person.
