What are the health benefits of rum?

What are the health benefits of rum?

In my opinion none: Small amounts of alcohol in ANY form (beer, wine or distilled spirits) - ONE standard drink per day - may have a beneficial effect on raising High density lipoprotein (HDL), a form of cholesterol that is protective. However, it goes up far more with exercise. Amounts of alcohol over this do not benefit health - they harm it. More than 1 drink/day in women and 2/day in men is the limit of safe use Read more

Is bacardi white rum @ the amount of of 350ml of having weekly once, is bad for health?

Is bacardi white rum @ the amount of of 350ml of having weekly once, is bad for health?

Intoxication? Yes: If this amount is ingested "weekly once, " then you are describing binge drinking. You are imbibing roughly 10 shots of rum in a shorter amount of time than your detoxification organs can clear it. Not only can this challenge your system, but the resultant intoxicated state will impair your senses and judgement. Read more

How much Rum is good for health in a day & in a week? In one sitting, how much amount should not be exceeded?

How much Rum is good for health in a day & in a week? In one sitting, how much amount should not be exceeded?

Consider carefully: For men, 3oz per day is considered ok. For women, 1.5 oz per day. Binge drinking is always a bad idea. And I wouldn‘t say rum is good for health. The only connection I know is drinking wine and positive effect on cardiovascular health. Even then, there are more detrimental effects than health benefits from chronic alcohol use in general. Sporadic social use in moderation is best policy Read more

If a diabetic person as a blood sugar content of 417 if given alcohol could be fatal to his health. Like causing death. He have been felling sick for a couple of days then I check his blood sugar and he was 417 then he drink some rum after a few minute

Diabetes and alcohol: As you probably know his blood sugar is very out-of-control. Whether or not he would die from alcohol he should not be drinking any alcohol. It depends on what kind of diabetic he is;yes some diabetics could die with that blood sugar. He needs to be under medical care if he isn't. Read more

Deleterious effect: Without doubt, you don't have to drink any alcohol, and if you currently don't drink, don't start drinking for the possible health benefits.

What to do if I drink too much rum?

What to do if I drink too much rum?

Get help cutting: Down, or stopping altogether would be my suggestion. Safe alcohol consumption in men is no more than 2 standard drinks (12 oz beer=5 oz. Wine= 1 1/2 oz distilled spirits) per day (and if 100 or 151 proof, it's essentially 2 drinks in one), no more than 14 per week and never more than 4 per occasion. If you need help cutting back/stopping, there are many programs that can help. Talk to your PCP. Read more

Can you tell me how potent is jamaican rum weed?

Supposed to be very: Potent, if in fact that is what you are really getting.

Dealers are as notorious as used car salesmen at selling their product and hoping it. Read more

Nightmare but not related to me. On long trip, catchup sleep, 1 rum punch?

Nightmares: There is no scientific validity to dream interpretation, anything can spill over into dreams. Dreamwork occurs at a cellular level, but if dreams recur or recurring themes, something is stuck at the cellular level. Please check out my No More Nightmares book and Planned Dream Intervention theory. You can learn how to sleep peacefully through the dreams. Read more

What do you suggest if I'm 5.8 and my weight is 155 pounds. How much time does it take to get slim if I rum 4 km a day?

What do you suggest if I'm 5.8 and my weight is 155 pounds. How much time does it take to get slim if I rum 4 km a day?

You are already at a: Reasonable weight for your height with a bmi about 23. Not sure what weight you are aiming for or why. However, it depends on how fast you are running, whether level or hills etc. If I assume running at 6 mph you would take 20 minutes to run 2 miles (approx 4 km) and would burn about 300 calories. This would result in about a 1 lb per week weight loss if you maintained current diet. Read more

Safe, not effective: There have been many claims for various vitamins and their ability to increase appetite. There is no reliable information to support this idea.

In general, multiple vitamins like Centrum as safe to take; however, best idea is to eat as healthy a diet as possible:) Read more

Why is it bad to mix, alcohol with soda (coca cola, sprite, etc.) coca cola with vodka? Or coca cola with rum?

Why is it bad to mix, alcohol with soda (coca cola, sprite, etc.) coca cola with vodka? Or coca cola with rum?

Not good or bad: What's the legal drinking age in your part of canada? It's not good or bad to mix alcohol w/soda, but the carbonation gets the alcohol into your blood stream more quickly and can lead to more rapid intoxication? Be careful and don't drink and drive. Read more
