What dose of alcohol is dangerous for the heart.
Experts have debunked the myth that reasonable alcohol consumption does not carry risk to health.
In fact, even one glass of liquor can cause cardiac arrhythmias.
A survey of about 900 thousand people have shown that even one glass of alcohol per day increases the risk of abnormal heartbeat by 8%. Despite the fact that moderate doses of alcohol increase the blood flow to the heart, it is a violation of electrical activity.
In this case, there is a risk of development of atrial fibrillation (atrial fibrillation). In turn, this leads to various heart problems, including blood clots and the symptoms of heart failure.
In the case of ignoring of arrhythmia risk of premature death from heart problems is increased in 2 times, and died of stroke 5 times.
Experts note that in a special risk group includes persons with problems of the cardiovascular system. The immediate harm of alcohol for the heart muscle cells causes the formation of fibrous tissue and disrupts the heart rhythm.
Alcohol is also a stimulant to the autonomic nervous system, responsible for heart rate, respiration and digestion.
The study is published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
