Will one isolated incidence of acute intoxication (10+ standard drinks) cause permanent brain damage in a youth with no previous binge drinking habits

Will one isolated incidence of acute intoxication (10+ standard drinks) cause permanent brain damage in a youth with no previous binge drinking habits

Growing brain: Brain is still growing in teenagers and young brain provided given the correct nutrition can heal the damage. Do a cleanse to heal liver and gall bladder. Acute intoxication is a transient phenomenon. Intensity of intoxication lessens with time, and effects eventually disappear in the absence of further use of the substance. Recovery is therefore complete except where tissue damage exists. ...Read more

26 year old male, drink about a 6 pack a night. Active, 6'1 200 pounds, non smoker. Can the beer I drink cause heart palpable and racing h.R.? No insu

But also indirectly from being dehydrated causing the heart to compensate for loss in volume and become irritable. I would recommend a reduction in alcohol consumption and consider keeping an eye out for a health fair or find a freeclinic to get a health assessment and assess risks. If issues persists or worsens, b seen. ...Read more

Is drinking 0.5l Coca-cola ZERO per day unhealthy / dangerous in long term (lifetime) perspective?

Is drinking 0.5l Coca-cola ZERO per day unhealthy / dangerous in long term (lifetime) perspective?

EXTREMELY UNHEALTHY!: In my opinion Coke Zero is poison and very unhealthy. I strongly advise NEVER drinking it if you want to have good health. It has both aspartame and acesulfame potassium, both of which are hazardous. Diet soda consumption appears to cause obesity and significant increased risk of diabetes, heart attack and stroke.
