Walking away in a hurry in 2019 and coming fast in 2020, China's traditional Spring Festival is gradually approaching, everyone has blessings and wishes, compared with other wishes and blessings, blessing health has always been the first.


During the Spring Festival, a lot of people either push a cup for a change or make a drink. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA) showed that heavy drinking can quietly damage the heart tissue, which may have occurred before symptoms appeared. The study by JAHA was conducted on 2,479 ordinary adults in the country's north-west, where alcohol culture is high, and on 278 other patients with alcohol problems who are undergoing psychiatric treatment. According to self-reported drinking levels, the subjects were divided into four categories: harmful drinkers, dangerous drinkers, problem-free drinkers and non-drinkers.


The researchers examined the subjects and collected blood samples to analyze biomarkers that reflected heart injury, ventricular wall distraction (associated with heart failure), and cardiac inflammation, including high-sensitivity troponin T, N-terminal proB-type diuretic natriuretic peptide (NTproBNP, a small protein), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, etc.


The results showed that the average participant who did not drink had no heart problems, but a sample of alcoholics showed that the index of potential heart damage increased by%, indicating that the index of possible stretch of the heart wall increased by% and the index of heart inflammation increased by%. Among the general subjects, the most frequent drinkers (harmful drinkers), the signs of wall-to-wall distraction were also more pronounced, with corresponding indicator levels rising by%. The overall result is that heavy drinking adversely affects the structure and function of the heart, with high levels of inflammation in their bodies and leading to a variety of health problems, including cardiovascular disease.


Drinking is not only hurting yourself, but also endangering others. According to a study published in the British Journal of Medicine in early 2019, the negative effects of alcohol consumption on fetuses and adults, road traffic accidents and the dangers to others caused by interpersonal violence have been underestimated. Both the mother's drinking during pregnancy and the husband's drinking during the wife's perinatal period can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD). A study of 2930 fetal alcohol syndromes and 12,650 fetal alcohol spectrum disorders found that the two diseases were linked to the deaths of% of third-party road traffic accidents and 55% of violent conflict deaths.


About drunk driving and drunk driving, on July 23,2019, China's Ministry of Public Security Traffic Administration announced that in the first half of 2019, the country investigated and dealt with 10,000 cases of drunk driving and 1525 cases of death caused by drunk driving nationwide, resulting in 1674 deaths, a decrease of% and% respectively over the same period last year. However, drunk driving led to 7512 non-dead traffic accidents, an increase of% year-on-year, indicating that drunk driving not only hurts itself, but also hurts many innocent people.


As for smoking, there has been a lot of research to prove its harm to the body. Another 2019 study showed that if alcohol and tobacco were to get caught, cancer would come to the door and it would be hard for people to walk away all over. People who smoke and drink drink have a high risk of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma compared to non-smokers, and often develop multiple types of cancer. The reason is that smoking and drinking can lead to genetic mutations in normal esophageal epithelial cells, which can cause canceration over time.


According to the statistics of the National Health and Health Commission, China's average life expectancy in 2018 is 77 years old, but the expected life expectancy of health is only years, that is, the residents have more than 8 years to live with disease. In the face of such data, the New Year quickly set up a flag and said goodbye to tobacco and wine. When we say goodbye to the tobacco culture and when it is really healthy, not only physical health, but also the health of personality and consciousness.
