Alcohol awareness month highlights health effects from drinking

April is alcohol awareness month.

For years, there have been claims red wine was good for your heart, but the World Heart Federation says otherwise.

In 2019, more than 4% of deaths globally were attributed to alcohol. Alcohol has been linked to a variety of diseases and cancer.

If someone does want to drink, moderation is key.

If you are concerned about how much alcohol you or a loved one is drinking on a regular basis, it’s important to reach out for help.
