Alcohol damage: Six illnesses that can develop if you regularly exceed the limit – Express.co.uk

Alcohol can bring about a number of health risks and serious illnesses.

Regularly drinking more than 14 units a week can increase the risk of you damaging your health.

Under UK government recommendations, 14 units is the equivalent of six pints of average-strength beer or 10 small glasses of low-strength wine.

There is no “safe” level of drinking, but there are recommendations for what to do to keep health risks from alcohol to a low level if you drink most weeks.

Men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis, drinking should be spread over three or more days if you regularly drink as much as 14 units a week, and if you want to cut down you should try to have several drink-free days each week.

So what can happen if you regularly drink more than the recommended units each week?

The NHS lists six illnesses, including cancers of the mouth, throat and breast, stroke, heart disease, liver disease, brain damage, and damage to the nervous system.

It adds: “The effects of alcohol on your health will depend on how much you drink. The less you drink, the lower the health risks.”

Alcoholic liver disease is a problem caused by drinking too much alcohol.

There are three main stages – alcoholic fatty liver disease, alcoholic hepatitis, and cirrhosis.

Alcoholic fatty liver disease is caused by drinking a large amount of alcohol, even for a few days, and the build-up of fats in the liver.

Alcoholic hepatitis is caused by alcohol misuse over a longer period of time, and cirrhosis is where the liver has become significantly scarred. If the person doesn’t stop drinking at this stage, they have a less than 50 per cent chance of living

Here's what's on tap for Silicon Valley Beer Week – The Mercury News

Contrary to its name, San Jose’s Clandestine Brewing is planning to make a lot of noise during Silicon Valley Beer Week, a 10-day celebration of all things suds that kicks off Friday.

Clandestine co-founder Adrian Kalaveshi says the brewery will launch its local distribution during Beer Week, with tap takeovers at Taplands in Santa Clara on July 22 and Trials Pub in downtown San Jose on July 26. And at its own taproom at 980 S. First St., Clandestine will be pouring for a good cause by taking part in Ales for ALS, a charity drive for which the brewery has crafted three beers, A Brief History of Hops, Hopothetical and Pils for ALS.

The beers will be released at a three-day event from Friday through Sunday, and for every pint sold, $1 will be donated to the ALS Therapy Development Institute.

But the most fun event Clandestine is hosting is probably “The Big Lebrewski,” a beer-themed homage to the Coen Brothers’ cult classic film. People are encouraged to arrive in costumes, and there will be prizes for the best ones as well as for those who know the most trivia about “The Big Lebowski.”

Clandestine is brewing three special beers with ties to the movie for the celebration: Calmer Than You Are, a hoppy American Pale Ale; Nihilist, an Imperial Doppelbock; and Brother Seamus, a White Russian Imperial Stout that is a nod to the White Russian cocktails preferred by Jeff Bridges’ slacker guru, The Dude.

“I think I am probably the biggest fan of the movie at the brewery,” said Kalaveshi, who has traveled as far as Chicago to attend Lewbowski Fests with his wife, Christine. “This said, I think just about anyone can appreciate the awesomeness of this movie.”

But Clandestine’s events are among dozens that will

Would You Drink This Beer Made From Recycled Sewage Water? – Forbes

Many of us love beer, but considering how a pint of it takes about 20 gallons to make, it’s not exactly the most environmentally friendly drink out there.

Yet, how far would you go in the name of sustainability? Would you drink a beer made from purified wastewater? 

The folks at Nya Carnegie Brewery, IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute and Carlsberg Sweden—believe you would, as they recently launched the country’s first beer made from ‘recycled water’ called PU:REST.

As the creator of this concept and Senior Project Developer at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute—the industry-government-owned organizationthat has been developing waste water treatment technologies for almost 50 years—Staffan Filipsson wanted to do something creative to raise awareness about the value of safe and clean water plus demonstrate that wastewater can be made drinkable.

How far would you go in the name of sustainability?Cohn & Wolfe

After several months of brainstorming, Filipsson and his team at IVL came up with the idea of using their highly purified wastewater for food production. Much as they’re confident it can be done, the key is: Find a food producer that’s willing to go for this. So he reached out to Nya Carnegiebryggeriet—a neighboring brewery founded by Carlsberg Sverige in collaboration with Brooklyn Brewery—that has used ecological ingredients in the past.

Like many of us, the brewery was skeptical initially—especially regarding the cleanliness of the water. That’s something Filipsson had certainly expected, so he went on to explaining the techniques IVL use to turn wastewater into something “as clean as drinkable tap water.”

First, the water is filtered through a combination of conventional microbiological treatment and an ultrafiltration membrane—a Membrane Biological Reactor (MBR) for breaking down organic substances plus separating bacteria, microplastics and parasites. Second, the water goes through a very tight reverse osmosis membrane,

More Young Adults Are Dying From Alcohol-Caused Liver Disease – Gizmodo

Over the past few years, there’s been a steady rise in the rate of Americans who die by suicide and drugs each year. But while much of the attention surrounding these deaths has focused on the opioid crisis, a new study out Wednesday in the BMJ highlights a different aspect of that increase: More people, especially young adults, are dying of alcohol-related diseases such as liver cancer and cirrhosis.

Researchers at the University of Michigan studied death certificate data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. From 1999 to 2016, nearly half a million Americans had died from cirrhosis, a chronic liver disease where the organ becomes gradually and irreversibly scarred and can eventually fail completely. More than 130,000 of those killed also had hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common form of liver cancer that is usually brought on by cirrhosis.

But compared to 1999, the researchers found, the annual rate of cirrhosis deaths jumped 65 percent by 2016, while liver cancer deaths doubled. The rise was even starker when compared to other causes of deaths. The cancer death rate in general had actually dropped over the same time period, as did deaths from cardiovascular disease, infections, and respiratory disease.

For lead author Elliot Tapper, the findings seem to confirm what he and his co-author have personally seen among their own patients.

“We had a sense from our clinical lives of treating liver disease that the epidemiology—that is, the kinds of people treated for liver disease—had shifted,” Tapper told Gizmodo. “We were shocked to find that our experience, limited as it was to the few hospitals where we practiced, could be seen throughout the US, albeit with
